In  the  most  hopeful  moments,  we 
did  not  conceive  the  publication  re- 
ceiving such  a welcome,  so  much  un- 
solicited support,  and  real  tangible 
expressions  of  individual  interest. 

Every  suggestion,  criticism  and 
word  of  encouragement  will  help  to 
improve  the  work.  An  effort  is  being 
made  to  make  this  magazine  what  you 
want  it  to  be. 

If  you  find  in  these  notes  a sugges- 
tion that  meets  your  ability,  your  co- 
operation will  be  appreciated. 

To  every  one — our  sincere  grati- 

New  York — “Will  enclose  a list  of 
people,  that  I know  are  interested 
in  genealogy,  and  I shall  be  glad  to 
share  with  you  the  things  I have 

Pennsylvania  — “New  York  records 
are  so  hard  to  get,  that  I am  much 
interested  in  your  venture.” 

New  York — “I  like  your  little  maga- 
zine very  much,  the  'short  articles 
are  so  interesting.  I hope  I may  be 
able  to  get  some  subscribers,  now 
that  we  have  resumed  D.A.R.  meet- 

New  York — “Can  you  give  me  the  ex- 
act location  of  the  old  Indian  Vil- 
lage of  Tonawanda,  and  the  old  Ni- 
agara Trail?  It  is  such  information 
as  this  that  adds  to  the  pleasure  of 
imotor  trips.” 

New  York — “Thank  you  for  the  very 
efficient  way  in  which  you  handled 
my  query.” 

New  York — “You  are  to  be  congratu- 
lated on  your  little  magazine.  It 
certainly  is  meeting  a real  need  in 
these  strenuous  times,  to  help  us 
keep  alive  in  us  the  spirit  of  our 
pioneer  ancestors. 

I certainly  need  all  of  this  back- 
ground to  keep  my  feet  firmly  on 
the  ground  that  these  sturdy  ances- 
tors gave  to  me.” 

California — “I  am  going  to  the  library 
tomorrow,  and  will  take  your  ma- 
gazine with  me  to  shov/  to  the  li- 

Pennsylvania — “In  my  opinion  you 
would  render  much  more  valuable 
aid  to  your  subscribers  by  publish- 
ing original  records,  instead  of  re- 
peating from  published  works.” 

Washington — “I  think  you  are  doing 
a wonderful  work,  and  I wish  I wore 
rich,  I surely  would  finance  your 

New  York— “Do  you  suppose  your 
magazine  will  reach  as  far  east  as 
Fulton  Co,?” 

“Will  you  take  in  Steuben  County?” 
“If  you  will  branch  out  and  include 
Allegany  and  Steuben  Counties,  I 
will  be  glad  to  share  the  things 
that  I have  found.” 

“I  atm  interested  in  Wash ’ng ton  Co.: 
will  it  be  possible  to  include  that?” 

Wisconsin — “We  have  in  our  library 
one  of  the  larger  and  more  used 
collections  on  American  genealogy. 
Will  it  be  possible  for  you  to  con- 
sider our  request  for  a place  on 
your  complimentary  mailing  list.” 

New  York — “ Your  little  magazine  is 

. meeting  a real  need  among  folks  in- 
terested in  family  lines. 

I am  enclosing  two  dollars  for  a 
subscription  for  a friend. 

I am  still  hoping  for  information 
cn  my  query,  but  just  the  clue  I 
need  will  pop  up  seme  day,  for  that 
very  unexpectedness  is  what  makes 
this  genealogical  work  so  fascina  - 
ing,  isn’t  it?” 

Conn.  May  I say  how  much  I am  en- 
joying your  magazine,  and  hope  to 
get  one  or  two ’subscribers' for  you. 
It  is  a most  worthy  undertaking. 

California  — You.r  undertaking  i s 
splendid,  and  the  fact  that  New 
Y rk  State  was  so  lax  in  records  of 
vital  statistics,  makes  such  an  ef- 
fort as  yours  particularly  valuable.

These  letters  are  typical  of  the 
hundreds  that  have  been  received,  and 
an  explanation  of  the  work,  published 
at  this  time,  may  answer  the  same 
questions  for  others. 

Two  motives  prompted  this  publi- 

First.  To  kindle  greater  desire  for 
knowledge  of  ancestors,  to  promote 
an  interest  in  local  history,  and  to  en- 
courage children  to  study  history  as 
something  personal. 

Believing  that  acquaintance  with 
our  ancestors  gives  ‘Something’,  not 
to  be  gained  in  any  other  way,  and 
knowing  that  a real  knowledge  of  the 
privations  and  struggles,  the  integrity 
and  valor  of  our  forefathers,  will 
abolish  much  crime,  and  promote  the 
spirit  of  “do  unto  others”,  we  endea- 
vor to  attract  with  narrative,  the  folks 
who  do  not  realize  the  benefits  of  this 
background.  Juist  nal.nes  and  idlates 
would  induce  little  interest. 

For  this  reason  we  use  previously 
published  records,  and  it  is  the  only 
time  original  records  are  not  used. 

Second.  To  share  our  records,  pro- 
vide a means  of  exchange  for  the  rec- 
ords of  others,  and  preserve  all  of 

Stones  have  been  cleaned,  dug  and 
lifted  in  cemeteries,  where  woodchuck 

holes  were  the  only  open  spaces.  In 
well-kept  cemeteries,  we  check  the 
lists  of  burials  with  the  tombstones, 
to  make  a complete  record.  Records 
are  thus  obtained  where  there  is  no 

In  copying  original  church  books, 
in  addition  to  lists  of  members,  bap- 
tisms, marriages  and  deaths,  we 
search  slowly,  through  the  fading  ink 
of  minutes  of  church  meetings,  to 
find  helpful  notes  on  relationship,  or 
place  from  which  a member  came,  or 
where  he  went. 

In  all  church  and  tombstone  records, 
unless  otherwise  stated,  our  published 
records  have  been  copied  by  us  from 
the  originals. 

In  the  West  Bloomfield  records,  all 
narrative  was  copied  from  the  old 

In  the  Bartoo  Records,  every  note 
has  been  taken  from  the  written  rec- 
ords of  Eli  Bartoo. 

The  Obituary  Records  are  copied 
from  the  only  copy,  now  treasured  in 
the  Museum  of  the  Buffalo  Historical 
Association.  Marriage  records  from 
.the  same  source  will  follow.  All  the 
records  from  A to  Z will  be  printed. 
Permission  for  this  publication  was 
obtained  from  the  Board  of  the  Or- 


Librarians  know  the  value  of  these 
original  records,  records  not  to  be  ob- 
tained in  any  other  way,  and  are  anxi- 
ous to  have  the  magazine  for  the 
benefit  of  those  who  use  their  librar- 
ies, but  appropriations  are  very  limit- 

Only  eight  libraries  have  subscrib- 
ed, all  the  others  are  hoping. 

Can  you  do  anything  to  help,  or  in- 
terest some  organization  in  making 
a gift  to  its  local  library? 

We  are  donating  our  time  and  ener- 
gy, working  early  and  late,  to  publish 
the^e  records.  In  addition  it  is  neces- 
sary to  mail  announcements,  and  en- 
deavor in  many  ways  to  obtain  sub- 
scriptions. Unfortunately  that  is  all 
we  -are  physically  and  financially  able 
to  do,  and  subscribers  are  the  only 

What  will  we  do  for  this  library, 
and  -all  the  others  that  have  asked  us 
for  a contribution? 

In  response  to  many  requests,  our  scope  has  been  extended  to  include  all 
of  New  York  State,  and  the  title  has  been  changed  accordingly. 




We  pause  and  remember. 

As  we  recall  the  cessation  of  hos- 
tilities on  November  11,  1918,  there 
come  vivid  memories  of  the  horrors 
of  that  war,  and  all  other  wars — the 
battles  on  these  shores  with  starva- 
tion and  cold,  the  savageness  of  the 
Indians,  the  terrible  winter  at  Valley 
Forge,  the  burning  of  Buffalo,  the 
prisons  of  the  Civil  War,  the  destruc- 
tion of  the  Maine,  those  horrible  gas 
attacks  in  France,  the  days  and  nights 
in  the  rain-soaked  trenches. 

Add  to  these,  the  agony  of  those 
who  waited  and  prayed,  add  all  the 
other  agonies  that  you  know,  make 
these  impressions  as  vivid  as  you  will, 
for  a band,  uniforms,  flags  and  march- 
ing feet  do  not  picture  war. 

All  that  we  are.  all  that  we  have, 
we  owe  to  those,  who  with  faith,  valor 
and.  the  courage  to  dare  and  to  do, 
laid  the  keel  and  built  for  us  this  Ship 
of  State. 

With  a prayer  in  our  hearts  for  no 
more  of  this  terrible  destruction,  we 
offer  tribute  to  those  who  deserve  the 
best  that  we  have. 

You,  who  are  stirred  to  remem- 
brance at  this  time,  do  not  stop  with 
one  day  of  tribute. 

Let  us  search  the  records  until 
every  name  has  its  proper  place  on 
our  walls  of  history.  Let  not  a name 
be  lost. 

We  pause  and  remember,  yea — we 
search  and  record.

two  months  before  our  first  number, 
and  who  has  been  a loyal  supporter 
ever  since,  sends  the  following:

Hiram  Bartoo  married  Laura  Bates, 
Mar.  29,  1796-Feb.  16,  1889,  a Con- 
necticut girl,  who,  after  having  given 
the  world  six  sons  and  three  daugh- 

ters, and  having  served  her  day  and 
generation,  fell  asleep  and  was  car- 
ried to  her  last  resting  place  by  six 
stalwart  sons,  of  which  this  writer 
was  one. 

Hiram  Bartoo  was  a successful 
farmer,  paying  for  his  farm  off  from 
it,  and  clothing  and  schooling  nine 
children  from  its  products. 

Hiram  and  Laura  Bates  Bartoo  had

In  the  early  days  there  was  more 
than  one  claim  to  territory,  and  one 
writer  may  call  certain  land  Vermont, 
and  another  mention  the  same  place 
as  being  in  New  York. 

The  story  of  the  disputed  boundaries 
of  New  York  is  therefore  helpful  in 
tracing  residence  of  ancestors. 

Canadian  Boundary. 

1783.  Northern  boundary  of  New 
York  recognized. 

1818.  Re-survey. 

1842.  Northern  boundary  again  sur- 
veyed, and  line  established  as  it  is  to- 


Vermont  was  originally  claimed  by 
New  York  and  New  Hampshire,  and 
the  two  very  often  granted  the  same 
land  to  different  persons. 

1777.  Settlers,  receiving  grants  from 
New  Hampshire,  denied  the  right  of 
New  York,  declared  themselves  inde- 
pendent, and  claimed  the  land  to  Lake 
Champlain  and  the  Hudson  River. 

1781.  An  Act  of  Congress  instruct: d 
these  independent  settlers  to  recede. 
1790.  New  York  relinquished  all  claim 
to  Vermont,  and  Vermont  paid  $30,300 
to  certain  persons  deprived  of  land, 
which  had  been  granted  oy  New  York. 

The  surveyors  for  New  York  were 
Robert  Yates,  Robert  R.  Livingston, 
John  Lansing  Jr.,  Gulian  C.  Verplank, 
Simoon  DeWitt,  Egbert  Benson,  Rich- 
ard Sill,  Melancton  Smith;  and  for 
Vermont,  Isaac  Tichenor,  Stephen  R. 
Bradley,  Nathaniel  Chipman,  Elijah 
Paine,  Ira  Allen,  Stephen,  Jacob  and 
Israel  Smith. 

1812.  The  pro  sent  line  was  establish- 


1662.  Charter  granted  territory  to  the 
South  Sea. 

1664.  The  eastern  boundary  of  Con- 

necticut was  the  Connecticut  River, 
and  the  western  boundary  was  twenty 
miles  east  of  the  Hudson  River. 

1731.  The  southern  boundary  of  Con- 
necticut was  extended  westward  along 
the  Sound,  and  New  York  was  com- 
pensated on  the  north. 

The  present  line  was  established, 
but  much  controversy  followed. 

New  Jersey. 

New  Jersey  claimed  “full  right  and 
lawful  authority  to  exercise  jurisdic- 
tion in  and  over  the  said  Hudson  Rivor 
and  the  said  main  sea,”  including 
Staten  Island. 

1806.  Commission  appointed  by  each 
State,  but  nothing  accomplished. 

1838.  Benjamin  F.  Butler,  Peter  A. 
Gay,  and  Henry  Seymour  from  New 
York,  with  James  Parker,  Lucius  Q. 
C.  Elmer  and  Theodore  Frelinghuysen 
of  New  Jersey  established  the  present 


The  original  boundary  of  Pennsyl- 
vania extended  from  the  northwest 
corner  of  New  Jersey,  along  the  cen- 
ter of  the  Delaware  River  to  42°  north 
latitude,  and  then  west  to  Lake  Erie. 
1781.  New  York  released  a portion  of 
its  western  territory  to  the  General 
Government,  who  in  turn  sold  it  to 
Pennsylvania  for  $151,640.00.  This 
gave  to  Pennsylvania  thirty  miles  of 
coast  on  Lake  Erie,  and  a good  har- 

1789.  The  present  line  was  established 
by  the  U.  S.  Surveyor  General. 

The  charter  of  Massachusetts  in- 
cluded “the  Maine  lands  from  sea  to 

The  claiming  of  territory  by  New 
York  and  Massachusetts  caused  much 
controversy  and  sometimes  bloodshed. 
1763.  John  Watts,  William  Smith, 
Robert  Livingston  and  William  Nicoll, 
representing  New  York,  and  William 
Brattle,  Joseph  Hawley,  and  John

Hancock  representing'  Massachusetts, 
agreed  on  a line,  twenty  miles  east  of 
i he  Hudson  River.  This  line  was  never 

1785.  Congress  appointed  Thomas 
Hutchin's,  John  Ewing,  and  David  Rit- 
tenhous  to  run  the  line  and  end  the 

1786.  James  Duane,  Robert  R.  Liv- 
ingston, Robert  Yates,  John  Haring, 
Meiancton  Smith,  and  Egbert  Benson 
for  New  York,  with  John  Lowell, 
James  Sullivan,  Theophilus  Parsons 
and  Rufus  King  for  Massachusetts, 
agreed  that  Massachusetts  would  sur- 
render the  entire  disputed  territory  of 
New  York,  and  would  receive  in  re- 
turn the  land  west  of  a line  beginning 
on  the  Pennsylvania  boundary,  and 
extending  north  along  the  present 
eastern  line  of  Steuben  County, 
through  Schuyler,  eastern  edge  of 
Yates,  Seneca  Lake,  eastern  boundary 
of  Ontario,  and  through  Wayne  to 
Lake  Ontario. 

This  line  was  called  the  “Preemp- 
tion Line/’  and  Massachusetts  had  the 
first  right  to  purchase  this  land  from 
the  Indians. 

New  York  retained  the  one-mile 
strip  along  the  Niagara  River. 

H88.  Oliver  Phelps  and  Nathaniel 
Gorham,  citizens  of  New  York,  bought 
the  preemption  rights  from  Massa- 


Following  this  they  purchased  2,- 
600,000  acres  from  the  Indians  for 
$5,000  and  a perpetual  annuity 
of  S500.  This  tract  was  bounded 
on  the  east  by  the  preemption  line, 
south  by  Pennsylvania,  north  by  Lake 
Ontario,  and  west  by  a line  running 
north  from  Pennsylvania  to  the  junc- 
tion of  Canas’sraga  Creek  and  the 
Genesee  River,  along  the  River  to  a 
point  two  miles  north  of  Avon,  then 
due  west  twelve  miles,  then  north  to 
'Lake  Ontario. 

A land  office  was  established  at 
Canandaigua,  many  families  bought 
land,  and  the  new  country  was  chang- 
ed from  a wilderness  to  settlements. 
J.790.  Robert  Morris  purchased  from 
Phelps  and  Gorham  for  thirty  thou- 
sand pounds,  that  part  of  their  origi- 
nal tract  which  had  not  been  sold.  This 
was  about  1,200,000  acres  of  scattered 
parcels  of  land,  and  was  called  the 
“Pultney  Estate”. 

1791.  Phelps  and  Gorham  were  un- 
able to  make  their  promised  payments 
to  Massachusetts,  and  so  induced  that 
State  to  take  back  that  portion  of 
New  York  which  had  not  been  pur- 
chased from  the  Indians. 

Robert  Morris  then  bought  from 
Massachusetts  the  right  to  buy  this 
territory  from  the  Indians. 

Massachusetts  deeded  to  Robert 
Morris  its  claim  to  the  last  of  the  land 
claimed  by  that  State.

A Successful  Search 

Last  Thursday  we  left  home  in 
lovely  sunshine  to  finish  copying  rec- 
ords in  Maple  Hill  Cemetery.  A beau- 
tiful place  on  a hill  at  the  side  of  an 
unimproved  country  road.  We  were 
searching  this  town,  because  sub- 
scribers had  asked  questions  in  the 
Mail  Box. 

We  finished  our  cemetery  inscrip- 
tions, then  went  to  ia  large  house  near- 
by to  inquire  about  old  records.  We 
met  a delightful  lady,  seventy-seven 
years  young,  living  alone,  and  filled 
with  the  history  of  the  place. 

Less  than  ten  houses,  a church  and 
cemetery  make  up  the  community.  In 
the  old  days,  with  poor  roads  or  none 
and  horses  for  transportation,  the 
church  was  not  neglected. 

The  good  lady  invited  us  in,  and 
answered  all  our  questions.  She  di- 
rected us  tc  the  home  of  the  church 
clerk  about  five  miles,  to  another 
home  a mile  further  where  our  desir- 
ed information  might  be  obtained,  and 
to  another  that  we  would  piass. 

Before  we  reached  the  first  stop,  a 
heavy  fog  had  developed,  and  visibili- 
ty was  not  good  for  planes  or  cars. 

Determined  to  complete  the  days 
work,  we  went  to  each  home,  secured 
the  church  records  in  one,  and  were 
advised  to  return  to  a house  near  the 

It  wias  growing  darker,  we  drove 
more  slowly,  and  found  our  house,  the 

home  of  the  superintendent  of  the 
cemetery.  A huge  dog  came  out  to 
say  in  no  uncertain  terms  that  he 
guarded  the  place. 

Treating  him  with  much  courtesy 
we  approached  the  door,  explained 
our  errand,  assured  the  folks  that  we 
really  were  honest,  and  promised  to 
take  good  care  of  the  book,  if  it  were 
loaned  to  us. 

It  was  very  graciously  loaned. 

Night  was  here,  fog  more  dense,  an 
unknown  road,  and  miles  from  hime. 
It  all  mattered  not  at  all,  for  on  the 
back  seat  of  the  car  was  one  of  the 
best  records,  if  not  the  best,  that  good 
fortune . has  brought  to  us. 

And  Mrs.  Willis  in  California  and 
Mrs.  McPherson  in  Illinois  we  have 
your  answers,  and  we  hope  many 
more  will  find  answers  in  this  very 
valuable  book.  Valuable,  because  in

Buffalo,  following  the  example  of  other  cities,  had  a Hobby  Fair.  A “Hob- 
by”, we  explain,  is  a pet  persuit. 

This  show  presented  countless  hobbies  in  most  fascinating  ways,  and  the 
collecting  of  unpublished  records  of  pioneers  gave  the  thousands  of  visitors 
an  entirely  new  idea  of  the  value  of  hobbies,  and  of  records. 

“Early  Settlers  of  New  York  State”  was  exhibited  and  attracted  atten- 
tion. Our  magazine,  with  some  of  its  priceless  records  locked  in  a glass  case, 
was  exhibited  in  the  Niagara  Frontier  Section. 

There  were  two  more  hclbbies  in  this  section — Miss  Daisy  Fox  exhibited 
her  collection  of  valuable  scrap  books,  containing  newspaper  clippings  of  his- 
toric subjects. 

Mrs.  Wickser  completed  the  exhibit  with  a colorful  and  unusual  display 
of  her  Romance  Map  of  the  Niagara  Frontier. 

Early  one  afternoon  a very  kind  gentleman  told  of  his  book  of  New  York 
State  marriages,  kept  by  a pastor  for  thirty-one  years.  Your  editor  t:ld  him 
how  valuable  that  record  would  be,  if  it  were  published.  That  same  evening,  he 
brought  the  book,  and  left  it  to  be  copied. 

Our  section  was  constantly  filled  with  interested  visitors,  many  of  them 
offered  to  loan  treasured  books  of  records,  and  when  space  permits,  they  will 
be  pr  inted. 


If'  you  have  given  much  thought  to  planning  some  entertainment,  which 
would  prevent  anniversaries  or  family  reunions  from  becoming  tiresome,  you 
will  welcome  this  idea.  It  will  please  children  and  adults.  - 

• Mrs.  Josephine  Wickser,  a subscriber  and  loyal  supporter  of  our  work,  a 
writer  of  imany  historical  pageants,  will,  write  a pageant  for  your  family. 

Your  guests  will  be  delighted,  in  simple  costume,  with  the  living  room  or 
garden  for  .a  background,  to  represent  their  ancestors,  and  relate  in  lovely 
verse  the  stories  of  these  pioneers. 

If  you  want  your  next  party  to  be  a real  success,  send  your  story  to  Mrs. 
Wickser,  and  tell  her  how  many  ancestors  you  v/ant  pictured. 

Address  — Mrs.  Josephine  Wickser,  257  Bryant  St.,  Buffalo,  N.  Y.

Olive  Matilda,  eighth  child  .of  Jesse 
and  Eunice  Bartoo,  was  blessed  with 
the  heritage  of  poverty,  which  was  so 
common  in  those  days,  that  it  was  not 
counted  even  an  inconvenience. 

She  gave  to  the  world  four  bright 
boys  -and  four  womanly  girls.  Tier 
husband  and  .sons,  Hiram,  William 
Henry,  and  Ira  served  in  the  Civil

George  Washington  and  the  Seneca  Chiefs 

Among  other  iricid?nts  in  the  Lie 
of  President  Washington,  now  re- 
called by  the  anniversary  of  his  birth, 
there  is  one,  not  so  well  known.  wh::h 
is  connected  with  history  of  Western 
New  York. 

The  Iroquois  Indians,  of  the  seme 
general  ancestry  as  the  Hurt  ns  of 
Canada,  were  a confederation  of  the 
five  t:ibes  located  in  the  order,  ranted, 
beginning  in  the  eastern  part  :f  Xew 
York  State  and  coming  west  — Mo- 
r:\vk,  Oneida,  Onondaga.  Cayuga,  and 
Seneca,  with  the  strongest  tribes,  one 
on  each  end.  The  Eries,  whose  name 
meant  wild-cat  and  well  described 
them,  were  along  the  southern  share, 
of  the  lake. 

About  1G55  the  Iroquois  met  and 
killed  all  but  a few  of  the  Eries  who 
went  beyond  the  Mississippi.  The 
Se needs  were  reddish-browm,  muscu- 
lar, had  straight  blank  hair  and  no 
beards.  They  lived  in  huts  made  of 
bark  fastened  to  poles  with  reeds. 
More  than  one  family  usually  lived 
in  one  hut,  and  if  it  were  large,  40 
to  60  feet  long,  there  might  be  twelve 
or  fourteen  families. 

They  wore  skins  for  clothes,  and  ate 
game  or  fish,  mixed  with  corn,  if  the 
women  were  sufficiently  ambitious  to 
plant  and  care  for  it.  They  painted 
their  faces  with  the  brightest  dyes  of 
their  own  manufacture. 

After  the  advent  of  saw  mills,  their 
nouses  had  earthen  floors,  with  some 
boards  along  each  side,  /with  deer 
skirs  spread  over  them  for  beds  and 
chairs.  At  meal  time  a bark  bowrl  was 
placed  on  the  floor  in  the  center  of  the 
rsnrn,  and  each  one  came,  helped  'h,im- 
•*elf  to  food  from  it,  then  retired  to 
his  corner  and  ate.  The  dogs  and  pigs 
were  nearby  to  eat  the  crumbs. 

In  1790  three  Seneca  Chiefs,  Corn, 
Planter,  Big  Tree  and  Half  Town, 
came  to  Philadelphia  to  plead  with 
President  Washington  far  considera- 
tion, after  General  Sullivan’s  army 

had  humbled  the  power  of  the  tribe.-, 
destroyed  their  habitations,  ar.d  en- 
dangered their  title  to  their  Lands. 

Corn  Planter  spoke,  “Father,  inno- 
cent men  of  our  nation  are  killed,  but 
none  of  your  people  who  have  com- 
mitted these  murders  have  been 
punished.  Was  it  interred  that  your 
people  should  kill  the  Senecas,  and 
not  only  remain  . unpunished,  but  be 
protected?”  He  upoku  further,  Wash- 
ington answered  with  sympathy,  and 
again:  Corn  Planter  spoke. 

“Father,  your  speech  is  to  us  like 
the  light  of  the  morning  to  a sick 
man;  he  sees  it  and  rejoices,  but  he  is 
not  cured.” 

They  asked  for  teachers  to  show 
them  the  way  of  the  white  man,  and 
President  Washington  suggested  that 
they  try  to  interest  the  Friends,  and 
he  also  instructed  the  Secretary  of 
State  to  consult  the  Friends  in  their 

The  Society  of  Friends  met  e'arly  In 
1791,  and  the  chiefs  remained  to  at- 
tend the  meeting.  In  h:s  speech  to 
them  Corn  Planter  said,  “We  have  too 
little  wisdom  -among  us;  we  cannot 
teach  our  children.  We  wish  them  fb 
be  instructed  to  read  and  write,  and 
such  oth  r things  as  you  teach  your 
children,  and  especially  to  teach  them 
to  love  peace.” 

He  suggested  that  three  of  their 
sons  be  sent  to  the  Friends  in  Phila- 
delphia for  education,  and  this  was 
dome.  Later  some  of  the  Indian  girls 
were  placed  in  families,  and  four 
years  later  were  returned  to  tkc-’r 
families  by  Henry  Simmons  and 
Joseph  Clark.  Each  girl  had  a Bible, 
a spinning  wheel  and  a supxdy  of 
clothing  she  had  made. 

In  1798  Joel  Swuyne,  Henry  Sim- 
mons, Ilailliday  Jackson, 
Sharpless,  and  John  Pierce  began  a 
mission  in  Cattaraugus  County,  the 
first  settlement  made  by  white  people. 
They  endeavored  to  encourage  the

Indians  to  work  and  promised  them  a 
saw  mill  aio  a reward.  Then  the' 
Indians  at  Buffalo  Creek  and  Tona- 
warda  Creek  asked  for  sai,v  mills. 
The  Friends  provided  for  three  mills. 
Among*  other  thing's  the  Indians  were 
taught  to  make  and  use  soap,  and  to 

use  flax  and  wool,  instead  of  animal 
skins,  for  clothing. 

Joseph  S.  Elkinton  and  his  son, 
both  ministers,  among  the  Society  of 
Friends,  were  interested  in  the  wel- 
fare of  the  Indians,  and  to  them  we 
owe  this  story.

Our  interest  centers  in  people, 
therefore  names  cf  those  having  ac- 
counts and  all  references  to  persons 
are  published. 

Each  of  these  accounts  contains 
many  items  that  were  purchased,  but 
to  publish  all  would  take  much  valu- 
able space,  therefore  a picture  of  pion- 
eer days  is  portrayed  by  a selection 
of  articles. 

The  following  are  named  in  many 
accounts  — chocolate,  molasses,  tea, 
raisins,  codfish,  oats,  wheat,  crackers, 
garden  seeds,  buttons,  molds,  spice, 
brimstone,  pepper,  thread,  calico,  flan- 
nel, shirting,  bombazett,  satinett,  bed 
coide,  nails,  aklm,  bells,  cambric,  tick- 
ing, wool  cards,  knitting  pins,  squares 
of  glass,  copperas,  bottles  of  Opodel- 
doc, and  the  following  seems  to  have 
been  used  abundantly  — cider,  rum, 
whiskey,  grog,  brandy,  gin,  tobacco. 

Now  and  then  these  items  occur: 
coap,  comb,  pocket  knife,  set  of  knives 
and  forks,  handkerchief,  hat,  shoes, 
ribbon,  hatchet,  pearl  ashes,  almanac, 
percepter,  spelling  book,  bottle  of 
British  Oil,  jug,  sickle,  bridle,  chalk 
line,  tea  pot,  indigo,  milk  pail,  6 ap- 
ples or  1 doz.  apples,  sheets  of  paper. 

From  the  above  it  will  be  seen  that 
many  cf  the  necessities  of  life  came 
from  the*  home,  and  our  pioneers, 
sturdy  or  mot,  ibad  to  struggle  to  pro- 
vide for  large  families.  There  were 
no  welfare  societies,  but  worthy  cases 
were  helped  by  the  church  and  good

They  took  a contract  for  a piece  of 
land,  and  began  clearing  away  the 
trees.  A log  house  was  built,  and  by 
hard  work  and  close  economy,  they 
succeeded  in  paying  off  the  contract, 
and  building  a comfortable  home. 
During  these  years  of  toil  and  hard- 
ship, nine  children  were  born.  Three 
sons,  Jesse,  Captain  Philip,  and  Wil-

the  Wilderness,  and  on  May  10,  at  Po 
River,  a ball'  lodged  under  the  right 
ear,  causing  total  deafness  in  that 
ear.  Returned  from  the  hospital  at 
Baltimore  just  in  time  for  Deep  Bot- 
tom Fight.  November,  1864  at  Peters- 
burg, Va.,  he  was  shot  through  the 
left  knee,  making  it  necessary  to  am- 
putate the  left  leg.  After  his  dis- 
charge, he  studied,  and  became  a 
Methodist  minister.  Preached  for 
•some  time  in  Arlington,  Kansas. 

The  children  of  William  and  Han- 
nah were  Ella,  who  married  H.  C.

All  over  the  country  methods  for  stamping  out  crime  are  being  suggested. 

Persuading  every  girl  and  boy  to  beccme  interested  in  his  forefathers, 
to  crea'.e  in  him  a desire  to  know  their  names,  to  learn  where  they  lived  and 
how  to  be  proud  of  what  they  accomplished,  and  to  want  to  be  like  them 
and — 

Teaching  each  newcomer  to  our  shores  to  respect  and  love  our  sturdy 
pioneers  who  founded  these  United  States,  to  teach  him  our  language,  and 
to  pnake  him  want  to  show  his  gratitude  and  loyalty  to  this  Republic — 

That  would  abolish  crime. 


A series  of  lessons  will  be  published  which  it  is  hoped  will  help  our 
readers  to  find  ancestors. 

Genealogical  Work  Sheets  have  been  printed,  which  will  make  your 
search  easier,  and  show  you  just  what  information  is  necessary,  we  recom- 
mend them  to  you. 

Send  25  cents  for  one  dozen. 


The  first  step  is  to  obtain  from  those  now  living  all  available  information 
pertaining  to  your  family. 

In  every  case  beginning  with  your  own  parents,  write  the  name  of  each 
ancestor,  and  follow  it  with  dates  of  birth,  marriage  and  death,  and  residence 
for  each  date. 

The  listing  of  each  brother  and  sister  of  your  lineal  ancestor,  and  corre- 
sponding dates  is  helpful. 

One  member  of  the  family  may  have  been  prominent  or  may  have  mar- 
ried into  a prcminent  family,  and  you  may  be  able  to  find  helpful  data  con- 
nected with  his  name. 


Clarence  E.  Curtis3,  printer  of  “Early  Setters,”  died  Tuesday  morning, 
February  19,  1935. 


For  a historical  pageant,  depicting  your  own  ancestors,  for  the  entertain- 
ment of  your  guests  at  your  anniversary  or  family  re-union  write  our  sub- 
scriber, Mrs.  Josephine  W.  Wickser,  257  Bryant  Street,  Buffalo,  N.  Y.

VOL  1 APRIL,  1935  NO.  10 











For  the  future  welfare  of  our  Country,  we  are  working  together  to  create 
more  interest  in  America,  to  induce  a keener  love  and  respect  for  our  pioneers, 
and  to  give  to  our  descendants  a background. 

A search  for  the  ancestry  of  one’s  own  family  is  commendable,  but  no 
enough,  we  must  arouse  others  to  a realization  that  the  ideals,  on  which 
this  country  was  founded,  must  be  preserved. 

With  a real  interest  in  forefathers,  knowing  their  names  and  homes, 
with  a realization  of  their  hardships  and  accomplishments  in  the  face  of  ob- 
stacles just  as  big  as  ours,  and  a desire  to  be  no  less  than  they— we  could 
not  fail. 

New  York  State  served  her  country  well  in  the  making  of  this  Republic, 
and  her  stories  must  be  preserved  before  they  are  lost  forever. 

In  the  January  number,  it  was  suggested  that  you  take  that  copy  to 
some  editor.  Ask  him  to  tell  his  readers  what  this  paper  is  doing  for  the 
descendants  of  every  family  who  had  pioneers  in  New  York. 

Make  a real  effort  to  arouse  some  enthusiasm,  so  he  will  pass  it  on  to 
his  readers.  You  can  start  a campaign  that  will  kindle  fires  of  loyalty  and 
patriotism.  Will  you  do  it? 

To  the  one  who  sends  the  best  published  article,  inspired  by  a subscriber 
and  our  publication,  before  April  30,  one  year’s  subscription  will  be  mailed  as 

a gift. 


We  have  a large  collection  of  records  ready  to  be  published,  more  are 
being  added  constantly,  and  it  is  regretable  that  readers  must  wait  so  long 
for  this  material  to  appear  in  print. 

It  has  been  suggested  that  four  pages  of  records  be  added  to  the  magazine, 
and  one  dollar  be  added  to  the  subscription  price.  Deducting  for  cover  and 
mail  box,  there  are  now  eight  pages  of  records. 

The  suggested  change  would  give  a sixteen  page  magazine  each  month 
for  $3.00  a year. 

There  will  be  no  change  in  the  present  policy  unless  the  subscribers 
wish.  What  do  you  want? 


We  will  be  in  Washington  in  April,  if  you  have  some  query  to  be  answered 
there,  write  at  once. 

Very  soon  we  will  begin  our  journey  across  the  State  from  Buffalo  to 
Albany,  searching  as  wre  go,  and  stepping  for  some  time  in  Washington 

Many  New  England  sons  established  a home  in  Washington  County,  and 
their  childden  moved  westward,  so  the  records  of  that  County  will  be  wel- 
comed by  many  subscribers.  You  may  look  for  them  in  the  June  or  July 

Our  office  does  special  searching,  it  may  be  possible  to  solve  your  problem 
while  we  are  in  the  Town  which  houses  your  difficulty. 

Write  us  your  problem,  and  we  will  try  to  help  you  at  a minimum  of 


Many  subscribers  write  to  ask,  if  we  want  family  records. 

Records  from  ycur  family  Bible  can  be  obtained  only  through  you,  readers 
may  need  that  very  data,  publishing  your  records  in  our  magazine  is  a certain 
way  of  preserving  them,  therefore- — 1 



A very  necessary  rule  at  the  beginning  of  a search  is,  learn  to  separate 
Fact  and  Fancy,  and  label  each  accordingly. 

Folks  will  tell  you  stories,  wrhich  they  have  accepted  as  true,  but  nothing 
is  truth,  unless  it  is  fact,  and  these  stories,  if  accepted,  may  give  you  a long 
search  which  will  end  in  disappointment.

Make  notes  of  all  the  stories,  for  some  of  them  may  furnish  a clue 
which  will  lead  you  to  the  facts,  and  some  of  them  may  be  true;  but  let  no 
tradition  lead  you  too  far  in  the  wrong  direction. 

How  do  you  decide  which  is  the  right  path?  Study  well  your  notes, 
and  trace  the  most  logical  stories  first.  You  can  be  sure  of  nothing  until 
you  have  proved  that  it  is  right  or  wrong. 

Each  time  you  record  a note,  follow  it  with  the  reference,  that  is,  the 
place  from  which  you  obtained  your  information;  if  a book,  write  the  name, 
volume  and  page.  In  addition  to  using  this  for  authority,  you  may  want 
to  refer  to  that  source  again. 

GENEALOGICAL  WORK  SHEETS  will  save  you  many  times  the  small 
sum  spent  for  them.  They  will  keep  before  you  the  necessary  questions, 
and  will  preserve  ycur  notes  in  understandable  form. 

All  notes,  pertaining  to  a given  person,  should  be  written  on  the  reverse 
side  cf  the  Genealogical  Work  Sheet  containing  his  history.  This  will  avoid 
searching  every  paper  pertaining  to  the  family,  in  an  effort  to  find  some 
particular  item. 

After  all  the  information  possible  has  been  obtained  from  persons  now 
living,  study  your  notes.  Compare  the  dates,  are  they  logical?  That  is,  are 
da'es  of  bir-th,  marriage  and  death  practical  as  compared  with  other  family 
dates.  Is  there  any  similarity  of  names?  Fix  residences  in  your  mind.

In  sparsely  settled  communities,  church  meetings  were  held  in  different 
places,  in  order  that  distance  travelled  by  members  would  be  somewhat  divided. 

Poor  roads  combined  with  rainy  seasons  or  snow  drifts  to  make  church 
attendance  difficult,  and  service  in  two  places  at  the  same  time  would  be 
tried.  This  usually  resulted  in  the  formation  of  two  churches. 

This  separation  was  generally  followed  by  lack  of  funds  sufficient  to 
maintain  two  churches  and  two  meeting  places,  and  the  settlers  would  again 
unite,  and  worship  as  one  church.  This  situation  was  very  common  in  the 
early  days. 

In  lists  of  church  members,  the  same  name  may  appear  more  than  once. 
This  is  explained  in  many  ways — the  second  name  may  be  the  child  of  the 
first;  members  moved  from  place  to  place,  sometimes  returning  two  or  three 
times  to  the  same  church;  and  errors  in  recording. 

The  data  published  is  a true  copy  of  the  record,  and  has  not  been  changed 
to  meet  what  seems  to  the  reader  to  be  correct.  It  is  very  probable  that 
church  clerks  made  mistakes,  but  we  have  not  the  right  to  say  when. 


In  1830  a second  church  was  formed  in  West  Bloomfield,  and  many  mem- 
bers of  the  first  church  united  with  the  second. 

There  is  no  data  in  these  books  pertaining  to  membership  of  the  Second 

In  1843,  the  churches  again  worship  as  one,  and  the  list  of  members 
at  that  time  will  be  published. 

Name  and  date,  which  precede  name,  are  date  of  admission,  and  town  from 
which  letter  was  presented.  This  enables  the  tracing  of  former  residence. 

Name  and  date  following  name  of  member  indicate  date  of  dismissal 
and  town  to  which  letter  was  taken. 

The  minutes  of  the  meetings  have  been  read  very  carefully,  and  every 
reference  to  a name  has  been  noted. 

Small  “d”  indicates  dismissal. 

Capital  “D”  indicates  death.

In  searching  ancestry,  build  up  the  tree,  do  not  begin  with  every  Revolu- 
tionary Patriot,  who  bears  the  family  name,  and  attempt  to  bring  him  down  to 
ihe  present. 

It  would  appear,  from  questions  received  for  the  “Mail  Box,”  that  some 
readers  select  every  pioneer  who  bears  the  family  name,  and  try  to  prove 
that  he  is  or  is  not  the  desired  ancestor. 

This  method  uses  valuable  space  in  the  “Mail  Box,”  and  delays  your 
real  help.  Ask  for  the  information  pertaining  to  the  person  that  you  know 
was  your  ancestor. 

Use  every  direct  method  for  obtaining  the  desired  information,  before 
'turning  to  this  round-about-way,  which  uses  time  and  energy,  and  usually  ends 

Experience  has  proven  that  consistent,  systematic  searching  from  one 
known  residence  to  another  is  the  most  satisfactory  course 

Instructions  have  been  given  to  collect  records  from  all  persons  who  know 
(he  family,  and  to  study  well  these  records. 

Now  search  these  known  ancestors  for  the  names  farthest  from  you,  names 
in  each  line  nearest  to  the  emigrant  ancestor,  and  make  notes  of  these  names. 

Armed  with  all  your  notes  in  good  form,  visit  your  library. 

“Genealogical  Work  Sheets”  will  eliminate  confusion,  and  keep  your  notes 
clear  at  all  times  to  you,  the  librarian  and  any  reader. 

Study  all  books  of  histories  of  families  having  the  same  name  as  your 
ancestor,  or  the  name  cf  a family  into  which  his  brother  or  sister  married. 
If  one  of  them  lias  married  into  a family  whose  records  are  published,  you 
may  find  something  which  will  add  to  your  records. 

“Genealogical  Work  Sheets”  provide  space  for  names  and  dates  of 
brothers  ana  sisters  of  all  ancestors. 

Do  not  depend  entirely  upon  the  index  in  any  book  as  proof  that  your 
ancestor  has  not  been  named  in  its  pages.  Mistakes  have  been  made.  Using 
your  dates  as  a guide,  verify  the  index  by  searching  in  the  contents  of  the 

Think  of  every  way  in  which  a name  might  be  spelled,  with  or  without 
M~c,  Do,  Von,  Fitz,  e'c.,  and  search  under  each  spelling.  Your  success  may 
depend  upon  your  ability  to  spell  the  name  as  it  was  written. 

If  the  name  appears  to  be  that  of  your  ancestor,  but  the  person  named 
as  his  wife  is  not  your  ancestor,  do  not  discard  this  information.  Compare 
the  dates,  could  there  have  been  another  wife?  Was  there  a second  husband? 
Many  times  only  the  marriage  pertaining  to  certain  descendants  is  noted. 

Do  not  overlook  an  ancestor,  because  mention  of  some  particular  person 
is  omitted. 


Gratitude  is  expressed  for  the  encouragement  received  from  the  “Boston 

That  woll-knonw  daily  newspaper  whose  editors  so  much  respect  American 
pioneers,  that  for  some  years,  many  of  its  columns  have  been  devoted  to 
questions  and  answers  from  descendants.  Many  ancestors  have  been  found 
in  this  paper  which  goes  everywhere. 

A newspaper  of  this  type  merits  support. 


Much  of  the  success  of  “Early  Settlers  of  New  York  State”  is  due  to  the 
efforts  of  loyal  members  of  the  “Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution,”  and 
to  their  Editor  at  Washington  who  has  generously  announced  our  magazine 
in  issues  cf  fhe  “Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution  Magazine.” 

The  D.A.R.  magazine . continues  to  inspire  interest  in  the  stories  of  early 
days,  and  to  encourage  the  preserving  of  records.  If  it  contained  only  the 
very  fine  pictures’  which  are  between  its  covers,  it  would  be  a very  worth- 
while magazine.

Since  the  last  issue  of  “Early  Settlers”,  we  have  met  and  very  much  en- 
joyed many  of  our  family  of  subscribers. 

Invited  by  a good  friend  to  go  to  Washington  for  the  D.A.R  Congress, 
•and  to  the  meeting  of  the  “Daughters  of  Colonists  , we  put  forth  ever>  effort 
to  spread  the  news  that  “Early  Settlers”  is  filled  with  records  of  early  days 
in  New  York  State. 

We  also  enjoyed  a very  interesting  meeting  with  the  National  Genealog- 
ical Society  in  Washington,  where  your  editor  had  been  invited  to  speax  on 
“Early  Settlers  of  New  York  State”. 

These  °-ood  Americans,  who  by  their  membership  in  patriotic  organiza- 
tions have  ^demonstrated  their  interest,  and  are  doing  their  part  to  promote 
that  which  will  make  ms  better  Americans,  have  done  much  to  encourage  o 


Many  have  subscribed  a.nd  we  hope  many  imore  will. 

Home  Then  off  to  search.  And  what  Luck!  Records  records,  and  more 
records— just  what  you  have  wanted  so  long.  It  needs  only  one  trip  like  this 
to  Drove  the  necessity  of  doing  this  work  today.  Records  are  fast  being  lo.t, 
and  it  will  soon  be  too  late;  many  are  gone  now. 

For  weeks  we,  your  special  messengers,  have  by  dusty,  difficult  driving, 
nenetrated  the  places  where  ancestors  livsd.  We  found  land  where  once  a 
church  had  stood,  an  old  church  now  the  home  of  chickens;  we  found  leaves 
in  pastures,  orchard's  and  country  lanes;  we  found  town  Hev 

the  way,  and  church  records,  worth  their  weight  in  gold,  located  only  a.tei 

diligent  searching. 

We  are  mo-t  grateful  for  the  hospitality,  co-operation  and  graciousness 
of  the  folks  we  met  at  Greenwich,  Shu.  han  Shaft sbury,  Vt.,  Bennington  Gran- 
ville Hartford,  Hudson  Falls,  Albany,  Windham  Greenville,  Fort  Jonn^on, 
Fonda,  St.  Jobnsville,  Cooperstown,  Burlington  Green,  Exeter,  and  -ad  tne 
other  places. 

Many  of  our  ancestors  came  from  Rhode  Isiand,  Massachusetts,  and  Cb*1-- 
irecticut,  and  lived  in  the  disputed  territory  betwron  Vermont  and  New  iork 
for  a generation  or  two,  before  going  into  the  Western  Country  as  they 
called  the  country  west  of  them. 

Records  have  been  collected  from  here  and  other  counties. 

As  we  approached  an  old  cemetery,  the  car  just  naturally  found  itself  a 
spot  in  tb°  shade,  while  we  hunted  for  the  inscriptions  on  broken  and  half 
buried  stones.  Our  car  is  an  old  and  tried  friend,  and  has  been  on  many  of 
these  trips. 

In  one  old  cemetery,  Russell  was  the  only  familiar  name,  so  we  copied 
tthie  records  for  our  friend  in  Texas. 

Time  did  not  permit  all  inscriptions  to  be  copied,  but  always  there  were  in 
mind  the  questions  of  sbscribers,  the  name:  of  their  ancestors — Gibbs,  Hunter, 
Hickok,  Schofield,  Hills,  Taft,  Collin*,  Mills  r,  and  all  the  rest,  for  I do  not  be- 
lieve that  we  have  missed  a name.  We  are  expecting  to  help,  you. 

We  are  filled  with  the  enthusiasm  and  d.sire  to  give  these  records  to  you 
at  once,  but  how?  Have  you  a suggestion? 

Here  is  the  story  in  figures — Last  year  every  subscription  to  “Early  Sett- 
lers” that  wars  sold  for  two  dollars  was  product  d at  a cost  of  eight  dollars^ for 
that  one  subscription.  That  its  entirely  apart  from  the  expense  of  searching 
and  copying  records,  which  has  been  donated  by  the  editor. 

WHY — Last  year  was  our  first  year,  and  our  subscription  list  is  small. 

Secondly,  we  have  no  advertisers  paying  Tor  apace  in  our  magazine. 

If  all  the  folks  in  the  United  States,  who  are  interested  in  New  York  an- 
cestor's, were  told  about  this  magazine,  we  would'  be  swamped  with  subscrip- 
tions. We  could  double  the  size  of  our  magazine,  and  not  charge  one  cent  more.

Just  today  a letter  with  a subscription  from  a dear  lady  of  eighty- 
eight  years,  who  hopes  that  she  will  live  long  enough  to  find  the  records  that 
fhe  wants. 

Others  of  us  are  wishing  tbs  same  thing. 

You  want  the  records,  we  want  the  joy  of  giving  them  to  you,  and  if  every 
subscriber  will  put  has  shoulder  to  the  wheel,  we  Will  all  be  happy. 

When  you  subscribe,  you  are  not  only  helping  to  locate  your  own  ances- 
tors, you  are  part  of  a plan  to  save  New  York  State  records.  Ls  t.iat  worth 
while  ? 

Your  name  has  been  an  inspiration,  and  we  look  forward  to  knowing  you 
better;  do  not  take  away  that  encouragement. 

We  need  the  renewal  of  'every  subscriber  in  order  to  carry  on. 

Four  pag.s  were  added  this  month,  as  a forerunner  to  what  is  coming. 


You  were  invited  to  answer  this  question — “Do  you  want  the  magazine 
enlarged  to  sixteen  pages  each  month  at  the  price  of  three  dollars  por  year?” 

Every  response  was  similar  to  this  “You  are  only  beginning  to  scratch  the 
surface..  You  add  the  records,  .and  I will  add  my  money”. 

Not  one  person  voted  against  an  enlarged  magazine  at  an  increased  price. 

We  promised  you  that  the  vote  of  our  subscribers  would  govern  the  future 
policy,  therefore — 

Volume  II,  beginning  July  1,  1935,  will  contain,  sixteen  pages  each  month, 
forty-eight  pagos  additional  next  year,  and  the  subscription  price  will  be  $3.00. 

If  your  subscription  doe'-  not  expire  until  October,  and  you  want  to  pay 
your  part  for  the  enlarged  magazine,  you  may  send  twenty-five  cents  novo,  or 
you  may  add  it  to  your  renewal  in  September. 


More  subscriptions  are  needed — make  'someone  happy — give  a second  sub- 
scription to  your  library,  to  your  organization,  or  to  a friend.

This  begins  the  series  of  Town,  Church  and  Cemetery  records  from  Gran- 
ville, Washington  County,  N.  Y. 


The  following  were  elected  to  office 
at  the  Granville  Town  Meeting  in 
1791:  Allen  Adams,  Benjamin  Baker, 
Timothy  Baker,  Robert  Barns,  Joseph 
Barrett,  Thomas  Converse,  Daniel 
Curtin,  Mark  Crofoot,  David  Doane, 
James  Darby,  Jonas  Earl,  David 
Graves,  Eoenezer  Gould,  Asa  Hicks, 
Abner  Hathaway,  Zecheus  Harring- 
ton, Timothy  Johnson,  Timothy  Leon- 
ard, Zadock  Lee,  William  Lee*  Isaac 
McWethy,  John  McWhorter,  John 
Nichols,  Elias  Needham,  Ambrose 
Parker,  John  Secomb,  Luther  Skin-

Woodruff,  Benjamin  Waite,  Rufus 
Whitney;  John  Whitney,  Jonathan 

In  the  days  of  these  records,  it  was 
not  customary  to  record  births,  but 
occasionally  a thoughtful  parent  in- 
sisted that  a record  be  made  of  the 
births  of  his  children. 

Thus,  he  went  to  the  Town  Clerk, 
and  a record  was  made  on  any  avail- 
able page. 

The  following  are  part  of  the  rec- 
ords, copied  from  the  Granville  Book: 

Mark  Crofoot’s  children,  recorded 
June  2,  1787.  Mehitable,  Solomon,  Ab- 
igail, and  Nathaniel,  born  in  Will- 
iamstown  in  the  Bay  State;  Joseph,. 
b in  Granville,  Mar.  20,  1785.

A Temperance 

At  the  annual  meeting  of  the  Tem- 
perance Society  in  the  Town  of  New- 
stead,  Nov.  20,  1831,  the  following 
were  elected: 

President,  William  Jackson;  Vice- 
President,  C.  K.  Anderson;  Secretary, 
Daniel  Trowbridge;  Treasurer,  Will- 
iam F.  Strickland;  Executive  Com- 
mittee, William  Weaver,  Lemuel  Os- 
born, John  Seaton,  William  Pratt, 
Jo<-iah  Murfee,  Marcus  McNeal,  An- 
drew Bell,  Jr.,  Isaac  Pars  ell. 

January  2,  1837,  the  following  were 
elected:  President,  Simeon  Bak:r; 

Viee-Pres'.,  Capt.  Lewis  Seaton;  Sec- 
retary, L.  M.  Baldwin;  Executive 
Gomimittee,  William  Jackson,  Elijah 
Knight,  Marcus  McNeal,  Mr.  Carrier, 
Humphrey  M.  Needham,  Daniel  Rus- 
sell, Milo  Tuttle,  Daniel  Trowbridge. 
(The  following  w as  recorded  in  1837) 
We,  whose  names  are  hereunto  an- 
nexed, believing  that  the  use  of  in- 
toxicating liquor  as  a beverage  is  not 
only  needless,  but  hurtful  to  the  so- 
cial, civil  and  religious  interests  of 
men,  that  it  tends  to  form  intemper- 
ate appetites  and  habits,  and  that 
while  it  is  continued,  the  evils  of  in- 
temperance can  never  be  done  away, 
do  therefore  agree  that  we  will  not 
use  it  nor  traffic  in  it,  that  we  will 
not  provide  it  -as  an  article  of  enter- 
tainment, that  in  ail  suitable  ways, 
we  will  discountenance  the  use  of  it 
throughout  the  community.

Route  5,  between  Buffalo  and  Batavia.  The  latch-string-  always  hangs  cut. 
You  are  invited  to  stay  over-night. 


It  has  been  suggested  that  the  subscribers  of  “Early  Settler s”  have  a get- 
together  party,  therefore — 

The  Time — September  6 and  7,  1935. 

The  Place — Copper  Tea  Kettle. 

An  effort  will  b?  made  to  have  speakers  familiar  with  New  York  State 
records.  There  will  be  round  table  discussions. 

Send  your  suggestion. 

There  will  be  no  charge  for  cabins.  Make  your  reservation  now. 

Further  announcement  will  be  made  in  later  issues. 


Many  have  expressed  appreciation  of  the  June  issue  in  letters,  then  en- 
closed checks  for  renewals,  and  subscriptions  for  others. 

That  is  tangible  help,  we  are  grateful. 

Subscriptions  sent  to  us,  return  a hundred  fold  in  records. 

The-se  records  can  be  found  in  two  placs,  our  'magazine  or  the  Town,  it- 
self. If  you  want  your  family  record-  found  before  they  are  lost  forever — 

Do  not  be  discouraged  because  your  family  did  not  appear  in  the  first 
volume.  Do  you  ever  search  a buk,  and  look  only  in  the  first  chapter? 

Our  second,  third,  and  later  chapters  will  be  larger  and  better,  and  the 
records  taken  from  many  different  places.  Records  are  constantly  being  added 
to  our  store,  and  it  would  seem  that  we  must  have  something  to  help  every 
descendant  of  a New  York  State  pioneer. 

Will  you  close  the  book  with  so  much  promise  ahead  ? 

Circulars  are  enclrsed  with  your  magazine  as  a convenient  way  for  you 
to  tell  some  one  else  about  “Early  Settlers.” 


A subscription  to  “Early  Settlers”  is  a very  lasting  gift.  Send  your  re- 
newal, and  with  it,  a subscription  that  will  make  some  one  happy. 

: One  subscription  or  renewal  for  you 

SEND  ONLY  $5.00  and 

One  subscription  for  a new  subscriber. 


These  work  sheets  are  designed  to  help  you  obtain  the  most  essential 
facts  when  searching  for  ancestors. 

They  will  keep  your  note*:-  in  form  which  you  or  any  reader  will  under- 
stand, for  years  after  the  record  wa.s  made.  A very  real  help. 


The  Page  Family  Coat  of  Arms  has  b.en  used  for  the  July  cover 

If  there  is  evidence  of  sufficient  interest,  a different  family  will  be  se- 
lected for  each  'month.

size  as  cover  and  no  lettering,  except  name  and  motto — Twenty-five  cents  each. 

We  have  arranged  with  an  artist,  wh  . hae  had  years  of  experience,  and 
whose  work  we  recommend,  to  paint  in  proper  colors,  the  same  size  as  the 
Page  Coat  of  Arms,  any  coat  of  arms  that  you  may  order  at  a special  price

Heraldry  is  the  science  which  teaches  us  how  to  describe  in  proper  terms 
armorial  bearings  and  their  accessories. 

The  shield  contains  the  field  or  ground,  whereon  are  represented  the 
charges  or  figures  that  form  a coat  of  arms.  The  decoration  around  the  shield 
is  made  according  to  the  fancy  of  the  rtist. 

Tinctures,  that  variable  hue  which  is  given  to  shields  and  their  bearings, 
are  divided  into  metals,  colors  and  furs. 

The  following  will  enable  you  to  read  the  colors  on  a black  and  white 

Dots — Or,  signifies  gold.  Yellow. 

Plain — Argent,  signifies  silver  or  wdiite. 

Vertical  lines — Gules,  signifies  red. 

Horizontal  lines — Azure,  blue. 

Limes  slanting  from  left  to  right — Vert,  green. 

Lines  slanting  from  right  to  left — Pur^ure,  purple. 

Vertical  and  horizontal  lines  crossing  each  other — Sable  or  black. 

Diagonal  lines  from  left  to  right  crassing  vertical  lines — Tonne,  orange. 

Diagonal  lines  crossing  each  other—  Sanguine  or  dark  red.

Ear  Marks  Registered  in  1787, 

In  the  early  days,  before  fences 
were  built  and  the  land  cleared,  a 
certain  mark  was  put  in  the  ears  of 
cattle  belonging  to  a person,  in  order 
to  distinguish  his  cattle  from  that  of 
his  neighbor. 

These  marks  were  registered  to 
identify  cattle  belonging  to  different 
individuals,  and  to  avoid  a duplica- 
tion of  marks. 

Marks  were  similar  to  this:  1787, 
Isaac  McWethy — Swallow  tail  in  the 
right  ear  and  a hole  in  the  left  ear. 

The  first  owners  of  cattle  in  Gran- 
ville to  record  ear  marks  were:  1787— 
John  Crary,  Timothy  Baker,  Thomas 
Searfes,  Ebenezer  Ferry,  Gordon  John- 
son, Justin  Fairchild,  Silas  McWethy, 
David  Doane,  Jophus  Murdock,  Sam- 
uel and  Ely  Murdock,  John  Spring, 
Mark  Crowfoot,  Josiah  Beard,  Jona- 
than Wright,  Charles  Crofoot,  Eleaz- 
er  Hill,  James  Austin,  Peter  Parker, 
Gideon  Barber.

John  Ball,  postmaster  and  storekeeper  kept  ‘his  accounts  well,  and  his  books 
have  been  loaned  to  us.  This  will  be  followed  by  notes,  records,  or  accounts, 
now  treasured  in  some  secret  place,  of  doctors,  merchants,  pastors,  etc.  of  the 

early  days. 


Bible  or  other  family  records,  treasured  by  one  member  of  the  family,  now 
shared  with  all. 


The  organizations,  baptisms,  marriages,  deaths,  and  lists  of  members  for 
several  years.  The  minutes  of  church  meetings  have  been  carefully  read,  and 
note  made  of  place  from  which  a member  came,  and,  if  granted  a letter,  the 
church  to  which  he  went. 

The  story  of  the  church  at  West  Bloomfield,  begun  in  1789,  is  the  first  record 


The  Museum  of  the  Buffalo  Historical  Association  has  the  only  copy  of  hund- 
reds of  names  of  persons  who  died  many  years  before  the  office  of  vital  sta- 
tistics. The  name,  residence,  age,  date  of  death,  and,  in  many  cases,  notes  per- 
taining to  the  family  are  recorded.  We  have  been  given  permission  to  publish 
this  valuable  list,  taken  from  early  newspapers. 


The  records  of  marriages  in  the  western  part  of  New  York  State,  going  as 
far  back  as  1812,  will  be  published  in  these  pa-?es.  This  data  is  also  copied 
from  the  early  newspapers,  and  loaned  to  us  through  the  courtesy  of  the 
Buffalo  Historical  Association. 


Copied  from  stones  in  old  cemeteries,  many  of  them  forgotten  and  overgrown 
with  weeds.  Many  stones  are  broken,  and  the  weather  is  fast  wearing  away 
the  lettering.  Notes  taken  from  books  kept  by  superintendents  of  cemeteries 
are  'added  to  these  inscriptions.  Some  cemetery  books  contain  residence  at 
time  of  death,  length  of  that  residence,  former  residence  and  birthplace  in 
addition  to  name,  date,  age,  etc.  Records  of  burials,  without  stones,  are  also 


Subscribers  imay  forward  questions  for  publication.  Readers  with  extensive 
collections  will  help  find  the  answers.

Do  you  realize  in  your  own  life  what 
you  owe  to  your  parents,  and  many 
grand-parents  ? Everything  you  ever 
were,  all  that  you  are,  and  all  that 
you  ever  hope  to  be,  you  owe  to  those 
who  came  before  you,  and  because 
they  lived,  you  now  have  life.  Many 
of  their  graves  are  unknown,  and  un- 
marked, but  you  can  write  their  names 
in  the  pages  of  history. 

Historical  dramas,  radio  productions, 
the  activities  of  historical  societies, 
the  marking  and  preservation  of  his- 
toric spots,  all  point  to  an  increasing 
interest  and  respect  for  the  folks  of 
other  days.  Very  soon  children  will 
be  asking  for  ancestors,  other  children 
will  have  them,  will  you  be  ready? 

New  York  State,  leading  in  many  good 
ways,  is  far  behind  in  its  preservation 
of  records,  so  much  so  that  it  is  al- 
most impossible  to  find  ancestors  who 
lived  here.  The  recording  of  vital 
records  in  New  York  State  was  begun 
some  years  after  1880,  and  for  the 
time  before  then,  the  State  has  no 
records.  In  1911  the  fire  ip  Albany 
destroyed  state  records. 

Searching  for  ancestors  in  New  York 
State,  means  going  into  the  highways 
and  byways,  and  searching  for  records 
in  the  homes,  churches,  graveyards, 
etc.  The  weather  is  fast  wearing 
away  the  inscriptions  on  stones,  many 
stones  are  broken,  and  unless  the 
records  are  preserved  now,  the  only 
proof  of  the  existence  of  some  folks 
will  be  lost  forever. 

Fire  and  carelessness  are  destroying 
the  valuable  manuscripts,  which  have 
been  handed  from  family  to  family. 
The  record  of  your  ancestor  may  be 
here,  will  you  let  it  be  lost? 

Because  many  descendants  are  un- 
able to  go  in  person,  this  editor  goes 
for  you,  hunts  in  the  forgotten  cor- 
ners until  records  are  found,  then 
copies  and  publishes  them. 

Many  New  England  families  settled 
in  New  York  State  for  a generation 
or  two,  and  grandchildren  went  into 
the  West.  Some  member  of  many 
American  families  lived  in  New  York 
State,  and  some  record  of  him  will  be 
found  in  our  pages.  These  records, 
now  published  for  the  first  time,  will 
be  of  untold  value  to  any  one  search- 
ing for  ancestors. 

A subscription  to  a reliable  genea- 
logical publication  brings  the  most 
return  for  the  least  money.

We  are  “riding  high”  this  month,  because  a glimmer  of  hope  is  on  the 

We  s'aid,  “If  we  can  keep  our  old  friends,  and  continually  add  new  ones 
to  the  list,  success  may  not  come  quickly,  but  it  will  come”. 

Many  subscriptions  expired  in  June,  the  last  number  of  our  first  year,  and 
to  date,  just  six  folks  have  cancelled  their  subscriptions.  That  proves  that 
there  is  value  in  our  work,  and  that  somebody  recognizes  the  value. 

The  reason  given  for  cancellation  was — “I  have  found  nothing  of  partic- 
ular interest  to  my  family”.  We  wish  that  we  could  have  inspired  these  six 
to  read  more  than  just  the  first  chapter  in  our  book.  The  pages  were  so  lim- 
ited that  we  could  not  hope  to  help  everyone  the  first  year,  but  if  you  will 
support  this  work  with  your  subscriptions,  more  records  of  interest  to  many 
people  will  be  found. 

Our  first  volume  was  far  fro'm  perfect,  its  faults  appear  much  larger  to 
us  than  to  the  readers,  but  we  have  tried.  We  wrere  not  publishers,  just  two 
folks  filled  with  the  desire  to  share  records. 

We  have  worked  hard,  but  you  have  endured  our  mistakes,  and  your  pa- 
tience, encouragement,  and  kind  letters  have  spurred  us  to  greater  effort. 

We  will  not  disappoint  you. 


Some  of  our  genealogists,  who  are  subscribers,  want  to  know  how  to 


Persons  write,  and  ask  a genealogist  to  search,  and,  because  the  desired 
information  its  not  obtained,  the  customer  neglects  to  send  his  check. 

When  a physician  is  called,  he  can  not  promise  to  save  the  patient;  a 
lawyer  is  engaged,  but  does  not  always  win  his  case;  a genealogist  uses  his 
intelligence  and  training  in  searching  to  the  best  of  hits  ability,  but  he  can 
never  tell  what  he  will  find.  Every  man  has  done  his  best,  and  accordingly 
has  earned  his  fee,  and  should  be  paid. 

The  cost  for  obtaining  definite  information  about  a certain  family  is 
asked.  It  is  very  possible  that  n‘o  such  record  is  in  existence,  therefore  no 
person  can  promise  to  find  any  unknown  record  for  any  price. 

A genealogist  searches,  and  because  his  erperience  has  taught  him  certain 
facts  about  the  pioneer  days  and  the  location  of  records  of  those  days,  he  may 
succeed  where  the  amateur  fails. 

Every  genealogist,  that  I have  met,  has  been  a very  fine  person,  one  to 
be  enjoyed  and  trusted;  thsrefore,  when  you  give  a commission  to  any  geneal- 
ogist, be  sure  that  you  have  faith  in  that  person,  and  then  pay  your  bill  as 
an  honest  debt. 


You  are  reminded  that  Sept.  6 and  7 are  special  days,  and  you  are  invited 
to  spend  them  in  Akron. 

Our  party  has  grown  into  a real  inspiration  meeting  for  Western  New 
York,  and  the  very  best  speakers  will  relate  in  an  interesting  manner  the 
stories  of  early  days  in  different  parts  of  New  York  State. 

Friday  there  will  probably  be  morning,  afternoon  and  evening  meetings 
at  the  Akron  High  School. 

Luncheon  and  dinner  will  be  served  in  the  Akron  Baptist  Church  for  50 
cents  per  plate.  Reservations  must  be  made. 

A complete  program  will  be  given  in  the  September  number.  Anyone  in- 
terested may  write  for  a program  before  that  time. 


Route  5,  between  Buffalo  and  Batavia.  The  latch-string  always  hangs  out. 
You  are  invited  to  stay  over-night.

The  editor  is  not  an  authority  on  coats  of  arms,  and  in  spite  of  con- 
sultation with  those  who  are  considered  to  be  authorities,  there  has  been 
criticism  of  our  first  effort. 

The  desire  for  accuracy  is  uppermost,  therefore  it  seems  best  to  dis- 
continue further  mention  of  coats  of  arms. 


The  month  of  October  will  be  devoted  to  searching  in  different  parts 
of  New  York  State,  and  particularly  in  the  southeastern  part. 

If  you  have  problems  waiting  to  be  solved  with  records  which  may  be 
found,  write  the  editor. 

Special  searching  at  this  time  will  cost  only  fifty  cents  per  hour,  if 
the  desired  search  is  in  a town,  which  we  plan  to  visit. 


Many  subscriptions  expire  with  the  September  number.  If  you  paid 
$2.75  when  you  subscribed,  you  will  know  that  it  is  time  to  renew. 

If  you  wish,  you  may  add  25  cents  for  the  enlarged  magazine  for  the 
past  four  months. 

A check  for  a subscription  was  received  from  a distant  state,  and  with 
it  came  this  letter:  “There  are  many  publications  from  which  I have  re- 
ceived help,  but  I did  not  contribute  anything  to  the  making  of  them. 

. The  libraries  are  filled  with  books  which  have  helped  me,  and  for 
which  I paid  nothing.  I have  completed  all  of  my  own  lines. 

Now,  in  turn,  I am  glad  of  an  opportunity  to  send  my  subscription, 
and  in  this  way  do  my  bit  to  publish  records  which  will  help  others.” 

A New  Jersey  subscriber  writes:  “Enclosed  find  check  for  my  renewal. 
So  far  I have  not  been  helped,  but  I keep  hoping,  and  any  way  I want  to 
feel  that  I am  helping  to  continue  this  work.” 

Every  person,  who  sends  a subscription,  helps  to  continue  the  work 
another  day,  and  he  has  just  that  much  more  chance  of  finding  his  ances- 
tor before  the  record  is  lost  forever. 

The  records  are  waiting,  but  someone  must  find  them. 

The  renewal  of  every  subscriber  is  needed. 


The  activities  for  the  Get-together  Party  will  be  confined  to  Friday, 
September  6,  and  subscribers  are  invited  to  use  our  cabins  either  Thurs- 
day or  Friday  nights. 

10  A.  M.  Friday,  cars  will  leave  promptly  from  the  Akron  Baptist 
church  for  a trip  through  the  Tonawanda  Indian  Reservation  with  Arthur 
C.  Parker,  Director  of  the  Municipal  Museum  at  Rochester,  acting  as  guide. 

12  o’clock,  Noon,  Luncheon  will  be  served  in  the  Baptist  Church. 

Visitors  may  bring  luncheons,  and  eat  in  the  Park. 

2 P.  M.  Opening  of  the  afternoon  meeting  at  the  Akron  High  School. 

Among  the  speakers  for  the  afternoon  are — Robert  W.  Bingham,  Di. 
rector  of  the  Museum  of  the  Buffalo  Historical  Society,  on  the  Niagara 
Frontier;  Guy  Comfort,  Editor  of  the  Perry  Herald,  on  the  Genesee  Coun- 
try, and  George  C.  Lewis,  a Lockport  attorney,  on  Early  Days  in  Lockport. 

5:30  Dinner  in  the  Baptist  Church. 

7:30  Evening  meeting  at  the  Akron  High  School. 

The  speakers  will  try  to  give  practical  suggestions  on  ways  to  develop 
further  interest  in  forefathers  and  historical  subjects. 

Dr.  Augustus  Shearer,  Librarian  of  the  Grosvenor  Library  at  Buffalo, 
and  Bryant  Fleming,  an  Architect  of  note  will  be  among  the  speakers. 

It  is  hoped  to  have  the  stories  of  ancestry  traced  by  tombstones,  by 
samplers  and  by  a quilt. 

Mrs.  Augustus  Shearer  will  present  the  story  of  the  “Melting  Pot”  by 
singing  in  costume,  folk  songs  of  other  countries  in  the  language  of  that 


The  program  for  the  entire  day  is  just  too  good  to  miss,  so  come  and 
enjoy  it  with  us.

The  first  church  in  the  Town  of 
Perry  was  organized  June  28,  1814, 
at  the  home  of  Hervey  Butler,  by 
Rev.  Oliver  Ayer  and  Rev.  Silas 
Hubbard,  missionaries  from  Connec- 

Meetings  were  held  in  the  homes 
of  Capt.  John  Gragg,  Samuel  How- 
ard and  Ralph  Wood,  in  barns  and 
log  houses,  until  the  schoolhouses 
were  built,  and  then  they  were  us- 
ed. The  first  meeting-house  was 
dedicated  in  1830. 

In  1865  the  Society  became  a 
member  of  the  Congregational  As- 
sociation. Although  not  a wealthy 
society,  they  very  early  divided 
their  substance,  and  in  1824,  they 
formed  a missionary  society  to  col- 
lect funds  for  Foreign  Missions. 
Later  they  changed  to  Home  Mis- 
sions, and  “to  the  improvement  of 
the  religious  condition  of  the  boat- 
men on  canals  and  inland  waters.” 

The  records  of  the  society  have 
been  kept,  and  will  be  published  in 
a later  number  of  “Early  Settlers”. 

The  following  served  as  ministers 
in  the  earlier  days — Edmund  In- 
galls, Jr.,  1816;  Elihu  Mason,  1817- 

1820;  Edward  Andrews,  1819;  Sam- 
uel T.  Mills,  1821-1824;  Eli  Hunter,

Old  Trails 

From  ‘‘The  Cradle  of  the  Queen  City”  by  Robert  W.  Bingham 

Many  readers  have  asked  for  a description  of  Indian  Trails,  stating 
that  such  information  would  add  to  the  pleasure  of  motoring. 

Mr.  Robert  W.  Bingham,  a real  authority,  was  asked  for  the  story,  and 
he  loaned  a typed  copy  of  a chapter  from  his  book,  “The  Cradle  of  the 
Queen  City.” 

Many  years  before  the  Holland 
Land  Company  sent  its  surveyors 
under  Joseph  Ellicot|  into  the  prim- 
eval forests  of  Western  New  York 
to  mark  the  villages,  towns  and 
roads  for  the  coming  of  the  white 
race,  the  red  man  had  blazed  the 

The  great  Central  Trail,  followed 
by  the  Indians  in  their  journeys 
from  the  east,  from  the  valleys  of 
the  Hudson  and  the  Mohawk,  cross- 
ed the  Genesee  River  at  Avon, 
wended  its  way  about  a mile  up  the 
river,  and  veered  to  the  northwest 
to  Caledonia.  Turning  to  the  west- 
ward, it  passed  through  LeRoy  and 
Stafford,  reaching  the  banks  of  Ton- 
awanda Creek,  a little  above  Bata- 
via. Following  the  east  bank  of  the 
Tonawanda  for  a short  distance,  it 
bore  to  the  westward  coming  out 
upon  the  creek  again  at  the  Indian 
village  of  Tonawanda.  Here  the  trail 
forked,  the  northwesterly  branch 
passed  through  the  Tuscarora  Vill- 
age and  down  the  Ridge  Road  to 
Niagara  River.  The  other  fork,  leav- 
ing the  village  of  Tonawanda,  passed 
to  the  southwest,  crossed  Murder 
Creek  at  Akron,  continued  on,  and 
entered  the  present  Main  Street  at 
Clarence  Hollow.  From  there  it 
passed  nearly  on  the  line  of  the 
present  road  to  Williamsville  and 
continuing  nearly  on  the  line  of  the 

present  Main  Street  passed  the 
Spring  and  from  there  wended  its 
way  to  Buffalo  Creek. 

A branch  trail  diverged  at  Clar- 
ence and  continued  on  to  Lancaster. 
From  there  it  followed  the  banks  of 
Cayuga  Creek  to  its  junction  with 
Buffalo  Creek  and  along  the  bank 
of  the  latter  to  its  mouth. 

A trail  that  extended  from  Little 
Beard’s  Town  on  the  Genesee,  en- 
tered Erie  County  near  the  south- 
east corner  of  the  present  town  of 
Alden  and  continued  on  westward 
to  the  Seneca  Village.  From  there  it 
wended  its  way  to  the  mouth  of 
Buffalo  Creek. 

Among  other  old  Indian  trails  in 
the  vicinity  were  those  up  the  Caz- 
enovia  and  Eighteen-Mile  Creeks 
between  Buffalo  and  Cattaraugus 

The  old  path  that  was  traveled  by 
the  Indians  going  from  the  Genesee 
to  the  Grand  River  diverged  from 
the  Central  Trail  at  what  was 
known  as  Four-Mile  Creek.  Follow- 
ing for  a distance  the  present  route 
of  Delevan  Avenue,  and  winding  to 
the  westward,  it  came  out  at  the 

The  Legislature  authorized  the 
laying  out  of  the  State  Road  from 
Avon  to  the  Buffalo  Creek  and  an- 
other to  Lewiston  in  the  year  1797.

September  Sixth,  the  day  for  our  Get-together  Party  for  subscribers 
to  “Early  Settlers”,  arrived  with  perfect  weather. 

Chapter  Regents  with  members  of  the  Daughters  of  the  American 
Revolution  were  present  from  Albion,  Buffalo,  Warsaw  and  Penn  Yan. 

Mrs.  James  Norton,  the  Regent  of  Mary  Jamieson  Chapter,  reported 
seventeen  present  from  Warsaw,  which  is  about  fifty  miles  from  Akron. 

The  Daughters  of  Colonists  and  Historical  Societies  were  also  repre- 

Mr.  John  L.  Moulton  of  Mobile,  Alabama,  came  the  longest  distance. 

The  first  stop  on  the  tour  of  the  Tonawanda  Indian  Reservation  was 
at  the  Baptist  Church,  where  Indians,  trained  by  their  pastor,  Miss  Ethel 
Knapp,  sang  gospel  songs.  The  beautiful  harmony  of  their  voices,  in  the 
Indian  language,  sounding  alone,  without  accompaniment,  was  greatly  en- 

After  an  instructive  talk  by  Mr.  Parker,  Simeon  Sky  asked  the  God 
of  the  palefaces,  the  God  of  these  Indians,  to  bless  us  as  we  went  our  way. 

A few  days  later,  this  Christian  Indian  fell  from  a silo,  and  his  life 
was  ended.  He  went  with  God’s  benediction  upon  him. 

In  addition  to  Simeon  Sky  and  Miss  Knapp,  the  Catholic,  Methodist 
and  Baptist  pastors  of  Akron  took  an  active  part  in  the  program  for  the  day. 

The  Work  Shop  in  the  Community  House  was  another  place  of  inter- 
est. Here  under  supervision  of  the  Rochester  Museum,  the  Indians,  taught 
by  their  own  people,  are  developing  skill  equal  to  that  of  their  forefathers. 

To  see  their  finished  products  in  wood -working,  metal,  leather,  paint- 
ing, and  basketry,  one  believes  they  have  inherited  the  ability  of  old,  and 
that  a restoration  of  these  arts  among  the  Indians  is  a worth-while  project. 

The  afternoon  meeting  in  the  Akron  High  School  was  opened  hy  the 
entire  High  School  assembly  marching  in  to  the  music  of  the  School  Or- 
chestra, the  singing  of  the  school  song,  the  Pledge  to  the  Flag,  and  the  ad- 
dress of  welcome  by  Miss  Gertrude  Leopold,  principal  of  the  school. 

Interesting  talks  on  by-gone  days  and  the  singing  of  folk  songs  of  dif- 
ferent countries  by  Mrs.  Augustus  Shearer  were  enjoyed  during  the  after- 
noon and  evening. 

Not  the  least  part  of  the  enjoyment  of  the  day  was  the  meeting  of 
new  folks,  the  beginning  of  real  friendships. 

As  many  autos  turned  homeward,  the  last  words  were — “We  must 
have  another  next  year”. 

And  in  the  next  number  the  suggestion  made  by  Mr.  Robert  Bingham 
will  be  announced.  It  is  a most  attractive  trip. 


If  you  are  sending  three  dollars  for  your  renewal,  you  may  add  only 
two  dollars  for  a new  subscription  for  a friend  or  library. 

The  new  subscription  may  begin  at  any  time.  Do  you  plan  to  buy  a 
birthday  or  Christmas  present?  Do  it  now. 


Schools  are  opening,  organizations  are  holding  first  meetings  after  the 
summer,  everywhere  there  is  added  interest  in  life. 

Are  you  feeling  the  impulse  to  do  something? 

One  receives  from  life  just  what  he  puts  into  it.  You  can  not  change 
these  every  day  business  conditions  in  any  spectacular  manner,  but  you 
can  control  your  own  reception  of  today’s  worries. 

Fill  your  mind  so  full  of  some  valuable  subject  that  these  depressing 
thoughts  can  not  find  a place  to  enter. 

There  is  no  subject  more  completely  absorbing,  more  increasingly  in- 
teresting, thrilling  and  exciting,  more  valuable  to  yourself  and  posterity, 
than  a search  for  ancestors.  If  pennies  are  counted,  it  is  within  the  reach 
of  everyone. 

Libraries,  which  may  be  used  without  cost,  are  filled  with  helpful 

The  suggestion  for  the  month — Subscribe  for  your  library.  Help  others.

If  you  can  not  subscribe  for  it,  go  to  your  library,  show  the  librarian 
your  codv  of  “Early  Settlers”,  and  tell  him  its  advantages. 

The*  satisfaction  of  having  done  a good  turn  is  yours,  the  reader  at  the 
library  will  be  grateful,  and  the  publishing  and  searching  for  records  of 
New  York  State  pioneers  will  continue. 

These  records  have  waited  many  years,  the  work  has  been  started, 
and  we  must  go  on.  . . - , 

To  you  who  are  paying  for  your  own  subscription,  and  also  tor  a 
library  or  friend,  you  are  helping  more  than  you  know,  and  your  effort 
encourages  us  to  continue  giving  our  time  and  energy. 


Very  soon  we  cross  the  State  to  Albany,  then  down  the  Hudson  for  an- 
other searching  trip.  Because  so  many  of  our  subscribers  are  interested  in 
Orange  County  records,  intense  searching  will  be  made  in  that  part  of  New 

York  State. 

Special  searching  for  your  ancestor,  while  we  are  in  that  County,  or 
any  Town  on  our  schedule,  costs  only  fifty  cents  per  hour. 

Every  day  fire,  weather  and  carelessness  are  destroying  the  precious 
records  of  ancestors,  placing  them  forever  beyond  the  reach  of  anyone.  It 
is  well  therefore,  not  to  put  off  any  searching  that  can  be  done  today,  for 
tomorrow  the  records  may  be  gone. 

This  is  an  opportunity. 

We  will  be  delighted  during  this  trip  to  meet  any  of  our  subscribers, 
or  to  visit  any  organization  that  is  interested  in  our  work.

Old  Trails 

From  “The  Cradle  of  the  Queen  City”  by  Robert  W.  Bingham 

In  the  report  rendered  by  Joseph 
Ellicott  to  Paul  Busti  in  the  year 
1800  he  stated,  “The  next  object  of 
my  report  is  that  relative  to  laying 
out  that  part  of  the  Western  State 
Road  leading  through  the  Holland 
Company’s  land  to  Lake  Erie.  Agree- 
ably to  instructions  relative  to  the 
performance  of  this  object,  I exam- 
ined with  considerable  labor  and 
trouble  the  ground  between  the  ter- 
mination of  the  said  Western  State 
Road  and  Captain  Gunson’s  (LeRoy) 
to  which  place  the  said  road  had 
been  heretofore  opened  and  the  east 
end  of  Lake  Erie,  and  after  such  ex- 
amination laid  the  road  on  the  firm- 
est ground  and  in  the  straightest  di- 
rection the  country  would  admit  of 
which  I returned  to  Paul  Busti 
in  topographical  representation  to 
which  was  annexed  an  estimate  of 
the  probable  expense  that  would  at- 
tend to  cutting,  clearing,  bridging, 
digging,  causewaying,  and  levelling 
each  mile  of  said  road.” 

As  stated  in  this  report  the  first 
road  in  Erie  County  was  laid  out 
under  the  direction  of  Joseph  Elli- 
cott in  the  spring  of  1798.  It  was 
the  improvement  of  the  old  Indian 
Trail  from  the  East  Transit  to  Buf- 
falo. As  surveyed  and  laid  out  by 
Joseph  Ellicott  it  passed  through 
Williamsville  to  Cold  Springs  then 
followed  the  line  of  Main  Street  to 
the  Creek.  The  completion  of  this 
road  naturally  took  some  time  and 
it  is  said  that  in  1806  the  main  road 
between  Le  Roy  and  Buffalo  which 
followed  the  line  of  the  old  Indian 
trail  was  not  all  cut  through.  For 
about  four  miles  between  Le  Roy 
and  Batavia  it  was  cleared  of  un- 
derbrush, but  only  of  sufficient 
width  to  allow  wagons  to  pass.  On 
the  west  side  of  Batavia  the  pres- 
ent road  was  impassable.  The  old 
trail  which  v/as  traveled  for  about 
eighteen  miles  v/as  a little  west  of 

the  present  road. 

The  settlers  in  the  vicinity  of  Buf- 
falo Plains  in  the  early  days  pre- 
ferred to  follow  a path  that  ran 
along  the  north  bank  of  Scajaquada 
Creek  to  Black  Rock.  Others  near 
the  Cold  Spring  had  a favorite  path 
that  led  almost  directly  west  nearly 
along  the  lines  of  the  present  Utica 
Street  to  the  river. 

It  was  some  time  before  the  pres- 
ent Main  Street  as  surveyed  by  El- 
licott was  passable  for  wagons,  be- 
tween the  village  and  the  Cold 
Spring.  A part  of  the  travel  was  on 
the  old  trail  that,  at  Buffalo  Plains, 
followed  the  Limestone  ridge  a little 
east  of  the  present  Main  Street, 
bearing'  to  the  right  and  crossing 
the  main  road  on  Flint  Hill.  Follow- 
ing the  rocky  ridge  to  Scajaquada 
Creek  at  the  old  fording  place  in 
Forest  Lawn  Cemetery,  down  the 
steep  banks  of  twenty  feet,  crossing 
the  creek  and  ascending  to  the  high- 
er ground,  the  trail  continued  on 
until  it  crossed  the  old  Gulf  Road 
about  where  Delaware  Avenue  is 
now.  Passing  the  Jubilee  Spring  the 
old  road  continued  about  on  the 
line  of  the  present  Delaware  Ave- 
nue to  Utica.  Here  it  bore  a little 
to  the  east  and  crossing  this  street 
continued  along  parallel  with  the 
avenue,  bearing  a little  to  the  west 
to  the  old  Guide  Board  Road.  From 
this  point  it  diverged  and  took  the 
course  of  Porter  Avenue  to  the  riv- 
er. At  this  point  the  traveler  turned 
to  the  left  and  followed  the  sandy 
beach  to  the  Creek. 

Under  the  pressure  of  immigra- 
tion to  western  lands  this  road  soon 
became  a passable  wagon  track  and 
many  lumbering  Cannestoga  wag- 
ons passed  on  down  that  trail  dec- 
orated with  the  large  painted  sign 
“From  Old  Connecticut  to  New.”

of  1771,  he  went  to  Newburgh  with 
a load  of  grain.  On  the  return  trip, 
he  was  taken  sick,  and  died  a day 
or  two  after  returning  home. 

About  1782,  his  widow  m Parshall

the  mountains.  After  many  hard- 
ships they  reached  Stroudsburg.  Pa., 
where  he  left  his  family  and  has- 
tened to  Orange  County  for  help. 

During  his  absence  his  wife  died, 
leaving  a large  family  of  children, 
the  youngest  only  3 years.  He  took 
his  family  to  Little  Britain,  Orange 
Co.,  and  there  m the  Widow  Horton.

August  31,  1935 

Editor  of  the  Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution  Magazine 
for  eighteen  years. 


Announcement  of  tentative  plans  for  next  year  are  made  now,  in  order 
that  you  may  make  suggestions,  and  also  that  you  will  become  so  interest- 
ed that  you  will  plan  to  be  here. 

Mr.  Robert  W.  Bingham,  Director  of  the  Museum  of  the  Buffalo  His- 
torical Society,  and  an  authority  on  the  history  of  the  Niagara  Frontier, 
has  suggested  the  following  tour  for  next  year. 

Meeting  probably  at  the  Peace  Bridge  in  Buffalo,  crossing  into  Canada, 
visiting  the  ruins  of  old  Fort  Erie,  taken  by  the  Americans  in  1814. 

Then  driving  on  to  the  battlefields  of  Chippewa  and  Lundy’s  Lane  in 
1814,  and  Queenstown  Heights  in  1812.  Back  on  the  American  side  to 
Devil’s  Hole,  the  scene  of  the  Indian  Massacre  of  the  English  wagon  train 
in  1763. 

Ending  with  a meeting  in  Old  Fort  Niagara,  built  by  Joncaire  in  1726, 
now  restored  and  attracting  many  visitors. 

The  September,  1934,  number  of  “EARLY  SETTLERS”  tells  the  story 
of  old  Fort  Niagara,  and  its  beautiful  location  on  the  bank  where  the 
Niagara  River  enters  Lake  Ontario. 

It  has  been  suggested  that  the  month  of  June,  after  school  closes,  is 
preferable  to  October. 

Have  you  any  suggestions? 


Library  subscriptions  are  increasing.  We  are  grateful  for  the  effort 
made  by  our  subscribers  to  interest  libraries.  We  hope  that  every  reader 
will  suggest  our  publication  to  some  library  or  organization. 





A letter  just  received  asks  for  special  searching,  and  gives  as  the 
reason — “It  is  the  family  of  my  son-in-law,  and  I want  it  for  his  Christ- 
mas surprise.”  There  is  the  perfect  mother-in-law. 

Does  that  suggest  to  you  anyone  in  your  family  who  would  like  a 
family  tree  in  his  Christmas  stocking? 

It  is  not  too  late,  we  will  be  searching  for  someone’s  ancestors  all  the 
month  of  November.  We  may  find  yours,  are  you  interested? 

This  is  an  excellent  opportunity  for  special  searching. 


December  eighth,  the  second  Sunday  in  December,  is  observed  as  Bible 
Sunday  in  the  churches  of  the  country. 

Miss  Mildred  Hunter  of  Kansas,  a loyal  subscriber,  writes — “Why  not 
have  all  subscribers  suggest  to  their  pastors  that  on  this  Sunday,  church 
members  bring  their  old  Bibles  to  display  in  the  church? 

The  display  would  be  very  impressive  and  the  Bibles  could  be  copied 
and  records  sent  to  “Early  Settlers”  for  publication.” 

A very  fine  suggestion,  what  will  you  do?

Baptisms  in  the  First  Church  of  Christ,  Perry  Center 


Minutes  of  the  First  Church  of  Christ,  Perry  Center 

The  following  notes  were  copied 
from  the  minutes  of  meetings  of  the 
Perry  Center  Church: 

Feb.  11,  1816.  The  church  met  at 
Samuel  Howard’s,  and  delegated 
Jabez  Ward  and  Samuel  Gilman  to 
represent  them  in  the  convention  of 
churches  to  meet  at  Silas  Walker’s 

in  Warsaw  “for  the  purpose  of  tak- 
ing measures  to  establish  a circu- 
lating church  library”. 

July  25,  1816.  Voted  that  it  be  ex- 
pedient for  this  church  to  be  united 
to  the  Geneva  Presbytery,  but  to 
retain  the  Congregational  mode  of

Aug.  13,  1816,  Presbytery  of  Gen- 
eva. The  Church  of  Perry  by  their 
delegate,  Mr.  Jabez  Ward,  requested 
to  be  taken  under  the  care  of  Pres- 

Presbytery  having  attended  to 
their  confession  of  faith  and  cov- 
enant, and  being  satisfied  of  their 
sacredness  in  the  faith — Resolved: 
That  their  request  be  granted. 

Mr.  Ward  took  his  seat  in  Presby- 
tery  as  an  elder  from  that  church. 

Attest — James  N.  Hotchkin,  Clerk. 

Apr.  20,  1817.  Rev.  Elihu  Mason, 
missionary  from  Connecticut, 

July  21,  1817.  At  a meeting  of  a 
very  considerable  number  of  the  in- 
habitants of  the  Town  of  Perry, 
Samuel  Gilman,  Jabez  Ward,  John 
D.  Taylor,  Samuel  Howard,  Jona- 
than Child  and  Horace  Bingham 
were  chosen  trustees  for  the  First 
Presbyterian  Church  and  Society  in 
the  Town  of  Perry. 


I.  You  will  believe  there  is  one 
God,  subsisting  in  three  persons, 
distinguished  in  the  Holy  Scriptures 
by  the  appelations  Father,  Son,  and 
Holy  Ghost. 

3.  That  God  hath  for  his  own 
glory  fore-ordained  whatsoever 
comes  to  pass. 

5.  That  the  government  of  God  is 
in  the  highest  degree  perfect,  and 
will  issue  in  the  greatest  good. 

II.  That  Christ  has  a church  in 
the  world,  and  the  qualification 
requisite  for  membership  is  holiness 
of  heart. 

The  above  were  selected  from  the 
fifteen  Articles  of  Faith. 


You  do  now  in  the  presence  of 
the  heart  searching  God,  and  before 
Angels  and  men,  choose  the  Lord 
Jehovah  to  be  your  God  and  por- 
tion, and  you  heartily  receive  the 
Lord  Jesus  Christ  for  your  Redeem- 
er, Saviour,  and  the  Holy  Spirit  for 
your  Teacher  and  Sanctifier. 

You  do  engage,  by  the  grace  of 
God  assisting,  wholly  to  renounce 
the  service  of  satan,  and  covenant 
to  yield  an  universal  obedience  to 
all  the  divine  commandments. 

You  do  submit  yourself  to  the 
government  of  Christ  in  his  church, 
and  to  the  regular  administration  of 
it  in  this  church. 

You  do  covenant  to  attend  the 
worship  of  God,  and  other  ordinanc- 
es of  the  Gospel  with  this  church, 
and  you  promise  to  be  accountable 
to  this  church  as  long  as  you  live, 
unless  you  be  regularly  released 
from  your  relation  to  this  church. 

Sept.,  1820.  Baptised  Roswell 
Gould  Murray,  a member  of  the 
Second  Church  at  Gainsville,  N.  Y. 

May  30,  1821.  A complaint  was 
laid  before  the  church-Horace  Shel- 
don complaineth  against  Samuel 
Gilman  for  a breach  of  the  Sabbath 
in  trying  lard  for  Benjamin  Gard- 
ner. Having  proceded  as  directed  in 
the  eighteenth  chapter  of  Matthew 
by  telling  him  his  fault,  between 
him  and  me  alone,  and  he  not  giv- 
ing me  any  satisfaction — I now  . tell 
it  unto  the  church. 

The  accused  stated  that  he  enter- 
ed into  an  agreement  with  Benja- 
min Gardner  to  assist  him  in  butch- 
ering his  swine,  and  in  taking  care 
of  the  pork,  whenever  called  upon. 

The  work  of  killing  twenty-three 
hogs  was  done  on  Friday.  Four  men 
worked  all  day  Saturday  in  cutting 
and  packing  meat. 

Some  of  it  had  begun  to  take  in- 
jury, and  it  must  all  be  tried  on 
Sunday,  or  be  greatly  injured.  When 
the  business  commenced,  the  prob- 
ability that  the  lard  must  be  tried 
before  Monday  was  not  contemplat- 

Samuel  Gilman  was  cited  to  ap- 
pear at  the  next  meeting, 

June  5.  The  case  was  referred  to 
the  Presbytery  of  Genesee.

Old  Trails 

From  “The  Cradle  of  the  Queen  City”  by  Robert  W.  Bingham 

The  usual  road  traveled  to  the 
west  from  the  village  was  down  old 
Willink  Avenue,  across  Little  Buf- 
falo Creek  to  the  bank  of  “Big  Buf- 
falo.’' There  the  road  turned  east- 
ward and  followed  up  the  bank  of 
the  creek  to  the  ferry.  From  the 
ferry  the  road  followed  up  the 
southern  bank  of  the  creek,  fifty  or 
sixty  rods  and  then  turning  to  the 
right,  reached  the  beach  of  the  lake. 
Travelers  then  followed  the  shore 
of  the  lake,  forded  Smoke’s  Creek 
and  on  up  the  beach  to  the  old  Jack- 
son  Tavern.  There  the  road  left  the 
beach  and  continued  on  the  high 
bank,  bearing  off  from  the  lake  as 
it  crossed  18-Mile  Creek  and  went 
on  through  Cattaraugus  Woods.  The 
road  through  the  Cattaraugus  Wood  3 
was  particularly  dreaded  by  the 
travelers  for  it  was  almost  impas- 
sable in  rainy  weather.  In  1809,  the 
road  beyond  Cattaraugus  and  on  to 
Erie  was  cut  out  and  a few  log 
houses  as  well  as  several  taverns 
served  to  allay  the  monotony  of 
travel.  In  these  pioneer  inns,  it  is 
said,  a traveler  could  obtain  a little 
pork  and  bread,  a hard  bed  and 
good  lake  or  spring  water.  At  Erie 
there  was  a village  larger  than  Buf- 
falo, consisting  mostly  of  log  houses. 

In  his  report  of  the  year  1805  to 
Busti,  Ellicott  wrote  that  he  had 
“marked  out  a road  from  New  Am- 
sterdam toward  the  Indian  village 
on  Buffalo  Creek.”  He  considered 
this  to  be  the  best  road  to  follow 
in  avoiding  the  great  swamp  that 
lay  on  the  west  of  the  reserve  and 
contemplated  continuing  the  road  so 
as  to  form  a part  of  the  Erie  Road. 
He  stated  that  the  new  thorough- 
fare was  to  be  a continuation  of 
Swan  Street  13  Vz  degrees  more 
southerly  and  terminating  at  the 
forwarding  place  of  Buffalo  Creek 
below  the  forks.  In  1807  this  road 
was  opened  as  contemplated  to  the 

Indian  village.  From  there  it  ran  to 
the  middle  road,  intersecting  it  near 
the  northeast  corner  of  Township 
No.  9,  range  7.  The  new  road  proved 
a great  convenience  to  the  villagers 
as  well  as  to  travelers  passing  to 
the  west,  as  the  utility  of  the  old 
road  was  under  the  influence  of  the 
weather;  on  the  occasion  of  high 
winds  and  heavy  seas  it  was  impas- 
sable for  days. 

The  old  Guide  Board  Road,  which 
carried  the  traffic  from  Batavia, 
Canandaigua  and  the  east  over  the 
Black  Rock  Ferry  trail,  diverged 
from  the  main  road  above  the  pres- 
ent junction  of  Main  and  North 
Streets,  followed  the  line  of  North 
Street  coming  near  Holy  Angels 
Church,  when  it  ran  northwest  pas- 
sing near  the  site  of  the  174th  Arm- 
ory, coming  out  at  the  river  nearly 
opposite  the  foot  of  School  Street. 
A little  later  the  old  Ferry  trail  was 
improved  and  a dugway  made 
through  the  high  bank  on  Niagara 
Street  nearly  opposite  School  Street 
to  the  Ferry.  The  Guide  Board  Road 
was  named  after  the  old  sign  on 
Main  Street  that  pointed  to  the 

In  the  south  village  of  Black  Rock 
in  1804  or  1805  two  lots  were  ap- 
propriated by  the  State,  as  a bury- 
ing ground.  As  the  ground  of  these 
lots  was  very  low  and  unsuitable 
for  the  purpose  for  which  they  were 
designated,  Col.  William  A.  Bird  se- 
cured an  exchange  for  a suitable 
place  on  higher  ground.  The  lot  se- 
cured was  bounded  by  Jersey,  Penn- 
sylvania, 14th  Streets  and  the  Mile 
Strip.  When  the  Guide  Board  Road 
was  cut  through  it  divided  this  lot 
and  a small  triangle  left  on  the 
south  side,  through  arrangements 
with  the  Black  Rock  authorities,  was 
approved  as  Potter’s  Field.

Aug.  29.  The  Presbytery  resolved 
unanimously,  that  the  work  of  Sam- 
uel Gilman  was  a violation  of  the

refused  to  admit  any  guilt,  and  ask- 
ed to  present  his  case  to  the  Pres- 

Feb.  1822.  At  the  session,  Presby- 
tery insisted  Mr.  Gilman  had  violat- 
ed the  Sabbath  and  resolved  that 
he  “shall  acknowledge  submission 
to  their  judgement,  and  profess  his 
intention  to  be  governed  by  it  in 
the  future,  in  word  and  conduct.” 

Colonel  Gilman  was  admonished 
by  the  chair,  but  he  refused  to  sub- 
mit, and  the  Presbytery  instructed 
the  church  to  suspend  him.

er with  a site  on  land  west  of  the 
lot  on  which  Pardon  Tabor  resides.”

which  obtains  the  most  shall  be  col- 
lected, and  the  other  destroyed  in  a 
public  meeting.

ported that  the  subscription  for  the 
Edward  Norris  site  was  $1785,  and

side to  be  finished  with  slips  below, 
and  above,  with  slips  or  pews.  Work 
to  be  in  modern  style”. 

The  slips  to  be  appraised  and  sold 
to  pay  for  the  building,  and  each 
subscriber  shall  be  entitled  to  the 
same  amount  of  property  in  the 
house,  as  that  which  he  pays  to- 
ward building  it.

agreed  to  build  the  meeting  house 
for  $2800,  and  to  make  it  six  feet 
longer,  and  take  extra  slips  for  his 
pay.  Later  it  was  agreed  to  pay 
$300  and  one.  slip  for  the  addition. 
The  slips  were  sold  for  prices  rang-, 
ing  from  $25  to  $175.

Old  Trails 

From  “The  Cradle  of  the  Queen  City”  by  Robert  W.  Bingham 

The  old  Gulf  Road  which  has  been 
referred  to,  followed  nearly  along 
the  line  of  the  present  Dele  van  Ave- 
nue. It  crossed  Main  Street  just 
south  of  Scajaquada  Creek  and  con- 
tinued westward  crossing  a deep 
ravine  or  gulf  formed  by  a stream 
flowing  from  the  Jubilee  Spring.  It 
was  from  this  gulf  that  it  obtained 
its  name. 

For  a long  period  the  only  road 
from  the  Terrace  to  Black  Rock  was 
the  Beach  Road.  This  led  down  the 
Terrace,  held  along  the  west  bank 
of  Little  Buffalo  Creek  thence  along 
Big  Buffalo  Creek  to  the  Lake,  cros- 
sing a small  stream  ten  feet  wide 
and  two  and  a half  feet  deep  be- 
fore reaching  the  Lake.  Then  the 
trail  led  down  the  hard  sandy  beach 
to  what  was  later  known  as  Sandy- 
town  and  thence  to  the  Rock.  San- 
dy town,  as  it  was  known  from  1312 
to  1815,  was  a place  of  considerable 
note  at  that  period.  It  lay  up  the 
beach  of  the  river  near  the  foot  of 
the  present  Porter  Avenue.  It  con- 
sisted of  a few  wooden  huts  or  shan- 
ties built  upon  the  sand  in  the  midst 
and  back  of  the  large  high  sand 
hills  that  were  then  in  the  vicinity. 
The  land  south  of  this  place  between 
the  beach  and  the  Terrace  and  south 
of  the  Creek  was  mostly  swampy 
and  contained  alder  and  other  bush- 

In  1806  Joseph  Ellicott  sent  the 
following  report  to  Paul  Busti: 

“There  being  no  other  way  to 
travel  from  New  Amsterdam  to 
Black  Rock,  the  Ferrying  place  over 
Niagara  river,  into  Canada  than 
along  the  Beach  of  the  Lake,  which 
was  sometimes  impassable  in  the 
Winter  Season,  and  at  others  on  ac- 
count of  Storms  of  Wind  raising  the 
Surf  over  the  Beach,  I was  induced 
to  lend  my  aid  in  opening  a road 

along Avenue  from  New 

Amsterdam  to  Black  Rock,  one  half 

the  expense  of  which  road,  or  more 
was  borne  by  the  Inhabitants  of 
New  Amsterdam.” 

This  report  although  the  name  of 
the  road  is  missing  undoubtedly  re- 
fers to  Niagara  Street  which  was 
laid  out  in  1809  but  for  some  years 
was  almost  impassable  as  it  was 
full  of  stumps  and  was  crossed  by 
many  streams.  Later  a corduroy 
road  corrected  the  difficulties. 

General  Wilkinson  of  the  United 
States  army  made  his  headquarters 
at  Black  Rock  in  1801  and  the  road 
building  which  was  accomplished 
on  the  different  sections  by  Major 
Peters  and  other  officers  was  under 
General  Wilkinson’s  direction.  In 
carrying  on  this  work  United  States 
soldiers  felled  trees  and  built  the 
first  bridges  across  Cayuga,  Tona- 
wanda,  and  Scajaquada  Creeks. 

A road  at  this  time  was  construc- 
ted running  through  the  land  not  in- 
cluded in  the  Holland  Purchase  but 
belonging  to  the  State  and  known 
as  the  Mile  Strip.  This  road  which 
extended  from  Lake  Ontario  to 
Black  Rock  was  known  as  the  Mili- 
tary Road.  Joseph  Ellicott  reported 
to  Paul  Busti  in  the  year  1805  that 
the  Military  Road  along  the  Niag- 
ara River  which  had  been  “cut”  100 
feet  wide  from  Lewiston  a little  to 
the  southward  of  Tonawanda  Creek 
in  1801  had  never  been  resumed. 
The  road  at  that  time  was  covered 
with  a high  growth  of  weeds  and 
bushes  rendering  it  impassable  to 
wagons.  In  1809,  the  State  appro- 
priated $1500  for  improvement  of 
this  road.  This  amount  was  to  be 
collected  from  the  purchasers  of 
land  in  the  Mile  Srip.  By  this  time 
there  was  a passable  wagon  road 
from  Niagara  Falls  to  Black  Rock. 

In  going  to  Fort  Erie  for  supplies 
the  villagers  rowed  directly  across 
from  the  mouth  of  the  Creek.

The  November  and  December  numbers  were  prepared  before  we  left 
for  our  searching  trip,  and  before  even  Thanksgiving  was  in  the  air. 

While  we  write  this,  Christmas  is  still  in  the  future,  and  though  you 
will  not  know  it,  until  after  the  new  year  begins,  today  we  are  wishing  you 
our  subscribers — a season  of  contentment. 

It  is  not  possible  always  to  be  merry,  but  if  we  will  count  the  blessings, 
and  forget  the  pricks  of  life,  our  smiles  of  contentment  will  cheer  many  a 

Our  list  of  subscribers  is  not  large,  we  can  almost  call  your  names,  and 
to  all  of  you  who  have  written  friendly  letters,  we  think  of  you  in  just 
the  Town,  in  just  the  State  where  you  live. 

You  are  more  than  subscribers,  you  are  our  friends  with  a common 
interest,  the  preservation  of  New  York  State  records.  Without  your  sub- 
scription and  your  encouragement,  records  of  New  York  State  pioneers 
would  remain  locked  in  some  safe,  the  work  of  preserving  these  records 
and  sharing  them  could  not  go  on. 

So  very  sincerely,  we  ask  that  God  will  bless  you,  and  make  you  con- 
tented all  through  the  years. 


We  have  just  returned  from  five  weeks  of  intense  searching. 

During  that  time  we  encountered  one  custodian  of  church  books,  who 
charges  five  dollars  each  time  he  opens  the  safe  where  the  books  are  kept. 

Another  custodian  refuses  an  inspection  of  the  old  books  of  his  church 
to  any  but  those  who  are  members  of  that  church  today. 

Conditions  of  this  kind  add  to  the  difficulty  of  procuring  these  records 
for  our  magazine,  but  readers  of  the  magazine  may  obtain  the  records 
without  any  of  these  troubles,  just  by  sending  a subscription. 

Other  church  officers,  realizing  the  benefit  to  their  church  and  to  de- 
scendants everywhere,  were  very  considerate  and  cooperated  to  the  fullest 

In  one  old  church,  organized  about  one  hundred  and  seventy  years 
ago,  by  carefully  reading  all  the  old  documents,  we  added  the  names  of 
about  two  hundred  members  to  the  list  found  in  the  books  of  the  church. 

Many  very  valuable  records,  from  around  Albany  and  down  the  Hud- 
son to  Orange  County,  have  been  added  to  our  large  collection,  and  they 
will  all  be  passed  on  to  our  readers. 


More  subscriptions  are  necessary  to  continue  this  work. 

If  you  want  this  publication  of  New  York  State  records  to  be  con- 
tinued, send  one  subscription;  you  will  be  happy,  the  one  who  receives  it 
will  be  happy,  and  it  will  mean  a happy  year  for  us. 


Many  subscribers  are  taking  advantage  of  this  opportunity  for  special 
searching  when  we  are  on  a trip  for  the  magazine. 

Very  often  more  than  one  person  desires  searching  in  the  same  part 
of  the  State.  It  takes  very  little  longer  to  look  for  two  or  three  names,  the 
same  places  must  be  searched,  therefore,  if  two  folks  want  records  from 
the  same  place,  you  receive  twice  as  much  time  for  your  money. 

Our  next  trip  will  be  to  Washington  in  April.  That  is  the  time  for 
searching  census,  pension,  military  s°rvice  or-  D.  A.  R.  applications. 

Requests  for  searching  in  Chenango  and  Washington  Counties  are  wait- 
ing, so  they  will  be  included  in  our  triD  during  May,  with  a possibility  of 
a return  trip  to  Orange  County  and  Dutchess. 

This  is  your  opportunity.

Old  Trails 

of  the  Queen  City”  by  Robert  W.  Bmgham 

From  “The  Cradle 

"William  Hall  recorded  an  interest- 
ing account  of  travel  to  Buffalo  m 
1802.  He  journeyed  here  on  horse- 
back with  saddle  bags  and  other  ac- 
cessories and  the  route  taken  was 
the  great  Western  Turnpike  which 
had  just  been  opened.  “Few  villag- 
es,” he  stated,  “were  observed  until 
arriving  at  Manlius  where  there 
were  a few  log  houses.  The  chief 
Indians  encountered  were  at  Oneida 
Castle.”  The  road  went  on  over  the 
Onondaga  hills  and  valleys  where 
an  occasional  log  house  dotted  the 
landscape.  The  bridge  at  Cayuga 
Lake  was  crossed  and  the  small  vill- 
ages of  Geneva  and  Canandaigua 

It  required  eight  days  steady  trav- 
eling to  cover  the  distance  between 
Hartford,  Conn.,  and  West  Bloom- 
field, Ontario  County,  New  York. 
After  resting  awhile  in  the  latter 

village,  the  Genesee  River  was 
crossed  at  Avon.  Here  the  road  be- 
came more  obscure.  At  Caledonia 
Spring  were  a small  church  and  a 
few  houses  and  at  this  point  the 
traveler  recorded  that  a long-legged 
bear  crossed  his  path.  From  Cale- 
donia to  Batavia,  the  road  was  most- 
ly through  woods.  At  Batavia^  Mr. 
Hall  passed  a few  houses,  all  built 
of  logs  except  a frame  building 
erected  by  Mr.  Ellicott  as  an  office 
and  his  dwelling  house  that  was 
then  in  the  process  of  building. 

There  were  but  few  houses,  built 
a great  distance  apart,  on  the  road 
from  Batavia  to  Buffalo,  and  as  they 
emerged  from  the  woods  upon  their 
arrival  at  the  village  of  Buffalo,  our 
traveler  stated  that  he  came  insight 
of  “the  beautiful  lake  which  was  a 
welcome  sight,  reminding  me  of 
Long  Island  Sound.”

(To  be  continued) 


Only  two  hundred  copies  of  the  records  of  the  old  Presbyterian  Church 
at  Goshen,  Orange  County,  N.  Y.,  were  published,  A few  of  these  were 
never  sold,  so  we  bought  them  for  our  subscribers,  because  the  records 

are  so  valuable. 

Judge  Charles  C.  Coleman  has  copied — 

Records  of  Marriages,  1776  to  1885.  Records  of  Deaths,  1805  to  1850. 
Register  of  Members,  1767  to  1850.  Resisted  of  Baptisms,  1773  to  1851,

The  following  will  give  a fair  idea  of  the  number  of  notations — 34 
marriages  were  recorded  for  1777,  34  members  admitted  in  the  year  1817, 
21  deaths  recorded  in  1807,  54  baptisms  for  1774  including  names  of  par- 
ents and  dates  of  birth. 

From  many  names  in  the  index,  the  following  have  been  selected,  be- 
cause there  are  at  least  five  references  to  that  name  in  the  book.  To  further 
describe  the  book,  the  number  in  parenthesis,  indicates  the  number  of 
times  that  name  appears  in  the  book.

Are  you  asking — Why  doesn’t  someone  answer  my  question? 

Almost  every  subscriber  has  offered  to  share  records,  be  assured  that, 
if  any  reader  knew  the  answer,  he  would  gladly  send  it. 

Many  publications  are  read,  much  searching  done,  and  as  a final  at- 
tempt, subscribers  write  the  ‘Mail  Box’.  No  one  has  your  record,  no  reader 
can  send  it  in,  because  it  is  waiting  witn  other  valuable  data,  locked  in  a 
vault  or  lost  in  an  attic,  just  as  often  one  as  the  other.  Will  it  ever  be 
found?  The  possibilities  are  better  every  day,  for  we  will  continue  to  hunt, 
copy,  and  publish  records  of  New  York  State  pioneers,  just  as  long  as  we 
receive  subscriptions.  If  your  answer  is  not  found  the  first  or  second  year, 
keep  up  your  courage.  Many  records  are  copied,  waiting  for  publication, 
and  many  more  are  waiting  for  us  to  find  them. 

Do  not  forget  to  renew  your  subscription. 

Every  day  adds  new  subscribers  to  our  list,  nearly  every  one  begin- 
ning with  the  first  number.  It  is  possible  that  a new  subscriber  will  have 
your  record,  and  send  the  answer. 

This  week  answers  came  for  three  persons  who  did  not  renew  their 
subscriptions,  and  as  they  no  longer  read  the  Mail  Box,  their  answrers  are 
not  published. 

Have  confidence  in  our  readers,  they  will  send  answers,  if  they  have 
them.  If  records  of  some  of  our  ancestors  in  New  York  State  are  ever  found, 
it  will  be  when  more  manuscripts  are  brought  to  the  light  of  day  and  pub- 

On  all  sides,  we  find  manuscripts,  unpublished  stories  of  our  pioneers. 
Books  which  have  been  published,  valuable  as  they  are,  appear  very  small 
compared  to  the  countless  wolumcs,  which,  locked  in  a corner,  cannot  be 

Do  not  give  up  hope,  just  because  your  family  has  not  appeared  in  the 
pages  of  Early  Settlers — Many  more  records  are  coming. 


The  following  notes  are  taken  from  just  two  of  several  letters  received 
from  subscribers  for  whom  we  did  special  searching  in  November. 

From  Illinois — “I  received  the  pictures,  records,  etc.,  and  I was  de- 
lighted with  it  all.  Many  thanks. 

I think  that  you  have  done  wonderfully  well” — notes  about  the  family, 
then — “I  enjoy  your  little  magazine  so  much,  as  it  helps  me  with  my  D.  A. 
R.  Registrar’s  work.” 

From  Minnesota — “Your  letter  reached  me  this  morning,  and  it  is  now 
11:45  P.  M.  Late  as  it  is,  I must  take  a few  minutes  to  write  and  thank  you 
for  what  you  were  able  to  find. 

You  have  found  me  exactly  what  I want,  for  it  will  give  me  a double 
line  into  Daughters  of  Founders  and  Patriots.  Many  thanks  for  all  this.” 

Searching  is  very  difficult,  at  times  most  discouraging,  and  such  letters 
as  these  spur  us  on  to  greater  effort. 

You  are  reminded  that  the  opportunity  to  have  special  searching  for 
your  family  is  at  hand. 

At  any  time  we  may  be  in  that  part  of  the  State  in  which  you  are 
interested,  plans  cannot  always  be  announced. 

During  April  we  will  be  in  Washington,  D.  C.  This  is  the  opportune 
time  for  searching  census,  pension,  military  service  and  D.  A.  R.  applica- 

Requests  for  searching  in  Ulster,  Chenango  and  Washington  Counties 
are  waiting  for  our  trip  in  May.

(The  End) 


Only  two  hundred  copies  of  the  records  of  the  old  Presbyterian  Church 
at  Goshen,  Orange  County,  N.  Y.,  were  published.  A few  of  these  were 
never  sold,  so  we  bought  them  for  our  subscribers,  because  the  records 
are  so  valuable.  Particularly  recommended  to  libraries. 

Judge  Charles  C.  Coleman  has  copied — 

Records  of  Marriages,  1776  to  1885.  Records  of  Deaths,  1805  to  1850, 

Register  of  Members,  1767  to  1850,  Register  of  Baptisms,  1773  to  1851.

We  are  searching  for  records  in  all  parts  of  New  York  State,  and  at  any 
time  may  be  in  just  the  place  that  interests  you.  Send  your  question  now 
It  is  not  always  possible  to  announce  just  when  or  where  we  are  going  to 

During  April  we  will  be  in  Pennsylvania,  Maryland,  Virginia  and  Wash- 
ington, D.  C.  There  are  many  advantages  in  searching  in  Washington,  and 
if  you  wish  to  send  your  problem,  we  will  give  you  our  opinion  as  to  the 
advantage,  or  not,  of  searching  in  Washington  for  your  particular  case. 
There  will  be  no  charge  for  this  advice. 

During  May  and  June  we  will  again  be  searching  in  New  York  state.  Our 
charge  is  very  small  for  special  searching,  when  we  are  searching  for  re- 
cords for  our  magazine. 

This  is  your  opportunity. 



Lessons  for  beginners  were  printed  in  the  March,  April  and  May  1935 
numbers  of  “Early  Settlers.” 

This  lesson  will  be  an  explanation  of  the  United  States  Census. 

The  first  Federal  Census  was  taken  in  1790,  and  recorded  the  name  of  the 
head  of  the  household  only,  the  number  of  males  in  that  home  over  sixteen 
years  of  age,  the  number  of  males  under  sixteen,  and  the  total  number  of 

Each  State  is  indexed  separately,  has  been  published,  and  can  be  found 
in  many  libraries.  Copies  may  also  be  purchased. 

Every  ten  years  since  1790  there  has  been  a census  of  the  United  States, 
and  the  original  records,  just  as  they  were  written  by  the  enumerator  as 
he  journeyed  from  home  to  home,  are  kept  in  the  Census  Bureau  in  Wash- 
ington, D.  C.,  where  they  may  be  examined  by  interested  persons. 

These  records,  not  indexed,  writing  usually  difficult  to  read,  even  diffi- 
cult to  see,  because  of  faded  ink,  ar.e  not  quickly  searched. 

From  1790  up  to  and  including  the  census  of  1840,  searching  the  records 
is  a difficult  task,  and  rarely  is  the  result  worth  the  effort. 

If  you  find  exactly  the  name  that  you  want,  you  must  then  search  to 
prove  that  he  is  your  ancestor,  or  that  he  is  not.  You  may  have  a long 
search,  ending  in  the  knowledge  that  he  is  not  your  ancestor.  All  that  time 
wasted,  which  could  have  been  devoted  to  searching  backwards  from  a 
contact  that  you  know  is  true. 

In  the  census  of  1850  every  person  in  the  family  is  named,  his  age,  and 
birthplace,  and  from  that  time  to  now,  census  information  is  very  valuable. 

If  you  have  an  ancestor,  whose  birth  date  and  birthplace  you  do  not 
know,  who  was  living  in  1850,  and  you  know  where  he  was  living  then,  it 
may  be  advisable  to  search  the  census  records.  It  is  well  to  keep  in  mind 
that  if  he  lived  in  a city  where  the  population  was  large,  it  may  be  nece- 
ssary to  search  for  some  time  before  his  name  is  found. 

With  this  description  before  you,  you  will  be  able  to  estimate  what 
benefit  you  may  expect  from  census  searching,  before  you  devote  your  en- 
ergies to  that  service.

Genealogical  Work  Sheets  ...  25  Cents  Per  Dozen 






We  hope  to  meet  many  of  our  subscribers  at  the  Continental  Congress  of 
the  Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution  this  month  in  Washington,  D.  C. 


THE  YEAR  1880 

Readers  will  be  saved  much  time  and  disappointment,  if  this  date  is 
firmly  fixed  in  their  minds. 

Writing  to  towns  and  counties  for  early  records  wastes  your  time  and 
the  time  of  the  official  who  receives  your  question.  The  same  story  is  told 
in  the  Office  of  every  Town  or  County  Clerk  - many,  many  letters  are  re- 
ceived, but  no  vital  records  are  available  for  early  years. 

Unless  your  family  was  sufficiently  prominent  to  be  noted  in  the  his- 
tories of  towns  or  counties,  or  unless  some  enterprising  member  of  your 
family  has  searched  and  published  the  records  of  the  family,  you  will  have 
to  search,  if  you  find  the  names  and  dates.  The  more  difficult  the  search, 
the  more  pleasure  and  satisfaction  in  the  success  of  the  task. 

This  difficulty  of  finding  ancestors  in  New  York  State  is  the  reason  for 

The  editors  of  “Early  Settlers”  are  constantly  adding  to  a large  col- 
lection of  records  of  New  York  pioneers  by  searching  in  all  parts  of  the 
State  for  pen  and  pencil  records,  tombstone  inscriptions,  etc. 

When  you  send  three  dollars  for  your  subscription  to  “Early  Settlers”, 
you  are  not  just  buying  twelve  copies  of  a magazine.  You  are  contributing 
three  dollars  per  year  to  a fund  to  find  and  properly  record  all  of  the  early 
settlers  in  New  York  State. 

If,  with  your  help  and  that  of  others,  we  are  able  to  continue  this  work, 
the  name  of  your  ancestor  should  take  its  place  on  our  pages. 

SATURDAY,  JUNE  27,  1936. 

Just  the  probable  date  at  this  time,  in  order  that  you  may  plan  accord- 

The  Subscribers  Get-together  Party  last  September  was  successful  be- 
yond our  fondest  hopes,  and  ended  with  every  one  saying — “We  must  have 
another  next  year”. 

On  June  27,  1936,  our  loyal  friend,  a real  authority  on  the  Niagara 
Frontier  history,  Mr.  Robert  W.  Bingham,  Director  of  the  Museum  of  the 
Buffalo  Historical  Society,  will  guide  us  on  a trip  covering  the  battlefields 
of  the  War  of  1812  on  the  American  and  Canadian  sides  of  the  Niagara 


This  will  be  a very  fine  way  to  see  Niagara  Falls,  meet  the  finest  folks 
that  live,  the  subscribers  to  “Early  Settlers”,  renew  your  history,  and  visit 
old  Fort  Niagara. 

We  hope  to  have  you  with  us. 


Do  you  need  special  searching  to  complete  your  records? 

We  are  constantly  searching  in  all  parts  of  the  State,  and  at  any  time 
we  may  be  just  where  your  record  could  be  found. 

There  is  an  advantage,  if  two  or  more  are  paying  to  search  the  same 
family,  because  searching  is  done  in  proportion  to  the  money  received,  you 
will  receive  two  or  three  times  as  much  time  as  you  wouid,  if  searching 
were  done  for  you  alone. 

For  example — we  now  have  four  subscribers,  who  are  interested  in  the

He  wras  a man  that  was  true  to  his 
country  and  friends.  He  was  the  man 
that  carried  the  package  for  Gen. 
Schuyler,  and  from  Gen.  Washington 
to  Gen.  Schuyler.  It  went  and  with- 
out doubt  was  the  instrument  that 
put  Gen.  Burgoyne’s  journey  to  an 
end.  It  was  he  that  bought  the  patent 
granted  to  John  Lawrence  and  others 
when  wild,  and  settled  the  same,  be- 
ing 2000  acres,  to  the  benefit  of  his 
children  and  grandchildren.  For 
which  I think  I ought  to  do  some- 
thing to  his  memory.

SATURDAY,  JUNE  27,  1936 

Subscribers  to  Early  Settlers,  Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution, 
members  of  all  patriotic  and  historical  societies,  and  to  all  who  care  about 
our  American  Pioneers,  you  are  invited  to  be  with  us  for  a day  on  the 
Niagara  Frontier. 

We  will  visit  the  battlefields  of  the  War  of  1812,  and  the  historic  spots 
of  that  day,  with  their  story  vividly  pictured  by  one  who  knows  their  story, 
we  will  view  the  Gorge  and  Falls  of  the  Niagara  River,  and  with  us  will 
be  just  the  sort  of  folks  we  like  to  know. 

There  is  no  charge  for  joining  this  pilgrimage,  and  overnight  cabins 
are  offered  to  subscribers  Friday  and  Saturday  nights. 

Readers  everywhere,  will  you  tell  your  society  about  this  conference, 
invite  your  members  to  join  this  group?  Last  year  several  societies  were 
represented,  and  this  year  we  hope  for  many  more. 

Further  details  in  the  June  number. 


If  you  will  help  enlarge  the  subscription  list,  if  you  will  try  to  obtain 
new  subcribers, — the  advantage  will  be  yours,  you  will  be  the  gainer. 

Just  as  soon  as  the  subscriptions  received  pay  the  cost  of  publication, 
we  will  give  you  a bigger  magazine,  more  records,  for  the  same  money. 

We  are  doing  our  best  to  tell  others  about  “Early  Settlers  of  New  York 
State”,  but  we  need  your  help.  A real  respect  for  pioneers  creates  a desire 
to  help  locate  all  ancestors. 

During  the  last  wTeek,  subscriptions  were  received  from  two  State  li- 
braries, and  one  City  library,  whose  librarians,  had  just  learned  that  our 
magazine  was  being  published.  Why  they  did  not  see  a circular  long  ago, 
can  not  be  explained. 

Many  folks,  just  like  these  librarians,  only  need  to  be  told  about  the 
magazine,  and  they  will  subscribe. 

There  are  many  ways  in  which  you  can  help,  without  spending  money. 

Show  your  magazine  to  your  local  library,  we  will  send  you  another 


Ask  your  newspaper  for  an  announcement  of  this  unusual  hobby  of 
collecting  records  of  pioneers. 

Take  the  magazine  to  your  society  meeting,  and  then  tell  the  members 
about  it.  Perhaps  they  will  want  to  subscribe  for  the  local  library. 

Do  you  know  someone  who  is  interested  in  ancestors?  Here  is  a way  to 
make  him  happy,  perhaps  on  his  birthday. 

You  send  us  just  one  dollar  $1.00. 

We  will  send  “Early  Settlers”  for  six  months  as  an  introductory  offer 
to  a new'  subscriber.

“And  being  willing  that  all  should 
know  our  Sentiments  with  regard 
to  the  great  doctrines  of  religion, 
and  supposing  it  necessary  for  the 
purposes  of  Christian  fellowship 
that  we  should  be  agreed  among 
ourselves  in  these  points  which  we 
judge  to  be  essential  to  true  Christi- 
anity, we  unitedly  adopt — 

We  believe  that  at  the  consuma- 
tion  of  all  things,  the  Lord  Jesus 
Christ  will  descend  from  heaven 
with  power  and  great  glory,  that 
there  will  be  an  universal  ressurec-

and  according  to  the  light  which  he 
has  given  us, — Solemnly  enter  into

During  the  month  of  March,  we  exhibited  at  the  Buffalo  Hobby  Show 
many  old  manuscripts,  cemetery  maps,  etc.,  from  which  the  records  for 
“Early  Settlers”  are  copied. 

Many  visitors  were  interested  in  this  display,  and  offered  their  treas- 
ures to  be  copied  for  our  publication. 

Other  exhibitors,  with  collections  of  old  Bibles,  allowed  your  editor  to 
copy  the  records  for  publication. 


On  invitation  of  the  Yates  County  Historical  Society,  we  journeyed  to 
Penn  Yan  to  talk  about  Genealogy  and  New  York  State  Pioneers. 

Added  to  this  was  an  invitation  to  tell  our  story  at  a luncheon  given 
by  the  Penn  Yan  Daughters  of  the  American  Revolution  in  honor  of  the 
State  Regent,  Mrs.  Clapp  of  Cohocton. 

We  very  much  enjoyed  meeting  these  folks  who  care  about  New  York 
State  pioneers,  and  secured  many  valuable  records  during  our  week  in 
Yates  County. 

April  and  May  we  will  be  hunting  for  records,  hoping  to  find  ancestors 
for  many  readers. 

We  will  be  in  different  States,  we  will  search  in  many  counties,  we  may 
even  touch  the  very  record  that  you  want,  and  many  will  be  copied  for 

If  you  would  like  to  have  a particular  search  made  for  your  family, 
.send  your  question  at  once.  The  cost  is  very  smalL

Tbe  Early  Records  of  the  First  Presbyterian  Church  at  Goshen,  N.  Y. 

Only  two  hundred  copies  of  the  records  of  the  old  Presbyterian  Church 
at  Goshen,  Orange  County,  N.  Y.,  were  published.  A few  of  these  were 
never  sold,  so  we  bought  them  for  our  subscribers,  because  the  records 
are  so  valuable.  Particularly  recommended  to  libraries. 

Judge  Charles  C.  Coleman  has  copied — 

Records  of  Marriages,  1776  to  1885.  Records  of  Deaths,  1805  to  1850. 

Register  of  Members,  1767  to  1850.  Register  of  Baptisms,  1773  to  1851. 

For  further  description,  see  Page  111,  January,  1936,  issue. 

One  of  our  Virginia  subscribers  was  the  first  to  order.  “The  Early  Re- 
cords of  the  First  Presbyterian  Church  at  Goshen,  N.  Y.,”  and  this  is  what 
he  has  written  to  us.  “I’m  delighted  with  the  book  of  records  from  Goshen. 

Excellent,  the  volume,  “Early  Records  of  the  First  Presbyterian  Church 
at  Goshen,  N.  Y.”  I have  gone  over  more  than  a thousand  names  in  these

About  one-half  of  'the  subscriptions  to  “Early  Settlers  of  New  York 
State”  expires  with  this  issue,  and  we  do  want  YOU  to  renew. 

Two  years  ago  we  began,  and  with  your  help  we  will  continue,  the  task 
of  finding,  and  preserving  in  this  manner,  the  records  of  ancestors,  whose 
lives  made  this  a better  country. 

Each  day  brings  new  evidence  of  the  awakening  of  more  interest  in 
forefathers,  and  on  all  sides  we  see  the  desirability,  almost  the  necessity, 
of  knowing  our  particular  grandparents  through  many  generations. 

We  have  just  returned  from  Virginia  and  West  Virginia,  where  we 
found  Marriage  Records,  dating  in  the  seventeen  hundreds,  in  the  Offices 
of  the  County  Clerks,  and  birth  and  death  dates  recorded  many  years  be- 
fore New  York  State  began  keeping  records. 

Remembering  that  New  York,  as  a State,  began  to  keep  vital  records 
after  1880,  a date  within  the  memory  of  our  own  parents,  fills  us  with  the 
courage  and  ambition  to  work  quickly  to  remedy  this  want  in  our  State. 

It  is  imperative  that  we  work  quickly,  the  floods  of  this  year  took 
their  toll,  and  each  day  something  is  taking  from  us  forever  the  possibility 
of  knowing  who  we  are. 

It  took  years  to  write  these  records,  all  ancestors  cannot  be  found  in 
two  years,  but  every  day  we  are  adding  records  which  will  be  preserved 

forever,  and — every  subscription  carries  the  work  just  that  much  further. 

We  are  counting  on  you! 

Send  three  dollars  for  your  subscription,  then  add  one  dollar  for  each 
friend,  send  name  and  address  of  the  friend,  and  we  will  send  “Early 
Settlers  of  New  York  State”  for  six  months  as  an  introductory  offer  to  one 
who  is  not  now  a subscriber. 

Your  local  library  would  like  this  gift  from  you. 

SATURDAY,  JUNE  27,  1936 

This  year  the  annual  conference  of  subscribers  to  “Early  Settlers  of 
NewT  York  State”  and  their  friends  will  begin  by  meeting  at  the  Peace 
Bridge  in  Buffalo  at  9 A.  M.,  Standard  Time. 

Crossing  into  Canada,  visiting  Fort  Erie,  the  battlefields  of  Chippewa 
and  Lundy’s  Lane,  Brock’s  Monument,  Queenston  Heights,  enjoying  dinner 
together  at  Niagara  Falls,  following  this  with  visits  in  the  afternoon  to  the 
historic  spots  on  our  side  of  the  River,  and  ending  the  day  by  standing  on 
the  ramparts  at  Old  Fort  Niagara,  listening  to  Robert  W.  Bingham,  Direc- 
tor of  the  Museum  of  the  Buffalo  Historical  Society,  make  the  early  days 
live  again  for  us — that  is  a brief  outline  for  the  day. 

Mr.  Bingham  will  be  our  guide  for  the  entire  day,  we  will  actually 
stand  where  our  forefathers  stood,  while  he  pictures,  in  a way  we  can 
never  forget,  the  early  days  on  the  Niagara  Frontier. 

Plans  are  being  made  to  provide  chartered  buses  for  those  who  pre- 
fer to  park  their  cars  and  enjoy  the  trip  in  a bus.  The  fare  will  not  be 
more  than  $1.50  per  person. 

Reservations  for  dinner,  not  more  than  seventy-five  cents  each,  and 
reservations  for  the  bus  seats  must  be  made. 

Write  for  later  plans.
